Comparisons have always been made between the Barry Kramer-led and Sidney Edwards-led Linton High basketball teams of the early and late 1960s, and which was the greatest Linton/Nott Terrace team in history. Another Blue Devil squad that should be considered was the 1955-56 Nott Terrace team that finished with an 18-1 record. That one defeat came at the hands of Binghamton Central, a team that the Blue Devils beat by a lopsided margin in a rematch later in the season. This team featured three future Division I players: Boyer “Ducky” Castelle was their slick ballhandling and playmaking guard who went on and played for Xavier; Tom Mossey was a big, powerful forward who did most of the rebounding and plenty of scoring. He later played for Syracuse. And Murray Melton, a pure shooter who was deadly from the perimeter. Melton went on to a superb career at Columbia of the Ivy League.
