Rhamel Brown scored 19 points to help Transit Tech pull off an exciting and hard fought victory over Jefferson High School in a quarterfinal game of the PSAL playoffs.

The third of four games held inside Lou Carnesecca Arena on the campus of St. John's, featured the best game of the day, a Transit Tech 60-53 victory.

Transit Tech took a narrow 12-9 victory after the first eight minutes of play and increased the lead to 28-21 advantage at the half. Heading into the fourth quarter, TT carried a 41-35 lead.

Barry Posey scored 11 points to help the winners hold off a Jefferson rally late in the second half of play.

Brown, a big man who used his frame well near the rim, is committed to Manhattan College for next season. He is a good shotblocker too, making his presence felt on both ends of the court.

Ramel also hit some big free throws late in the game to help Transit Tech to halt the fierce Jefferson rally.

Transit Tech will play Cardozo High School Wednesday night in the PSAL semfinals to be held at St. John's University.
