JAN COLINA propped up Jumbo Plastic in the final quarter as the Giants turned back Derulo Accelero, 73-61, to crash in the top three of the PBA D-League Aspirants Cup yesterday at Blue Eagle Gym.

Flashing improved play in recent games, Colina sparked a fourth-quarter breakaway that gave the Giants a double-digit buffer, 57-47, after a  slim 46-43 lead.
