Dodger Blue, you got me going on this one. Barry Kramer was a great, great player but somewhere near the end of his junior year he was injured. Believe he broke his ankle. The following year, I agree, Lembo was the better player. Kramer went in the first round of the NBA draft - to the Lakers. The Manhattan College chant in the old Garden was that Larry was better than Barry. Larry Lembo had one of the best jump shots I ever saw - and from deep!

Became better known as a ref but was a great, great player. Didn't know much about Matty Link, was he from Molloy?

Matty was the strong boy of the trio...a mass of muscles at 6:4 off the boards. Not sure of his high school but the three of them played in the old Long Island Press League. Doubleheaders at the Garden that had Fordham vs Manhattan in the 1st Game and St.John's vs NYU in the 2nd were really neighborhood brawls (LOL).REmember the Fordham Section chanting "What the hell"s a Jasper" and Manhattan answering "the hell with Fordham, the hell with the Ram, the hell with Fordham and DAMN THE RAM" Dem were da DAZE!!
