    BORACAY Rum grabbed solo third spot in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup with an 87-67 rout of newcomer Jumbo Plastic on Tuesday at The Arena in San Juan.

    The Waves improved their win-loss record to 2-1 after a third-quarter pullaway to close in on the undefeated Fruitas and Blackwater Sports (2-0).

    Boracay Rum outscored Jumbo Plastic, 28-12, in the third period to take control.

    “Hindi kami nagpabaya sa depensa,” said Boracay Rum coach Lawrence Chongson. “Masama ’yung depensa namin, buti nalang nakabawi kami nung second half. ’Yun nalang ang ginagawa naming puhunan.”

    Jeff Viernes led the Waves with 18 points followed by Jaymo Eguilos with 10 markers while swatting four shots. Raymond Ilagan had eight points and 10 boards.

    Aljon Mariano tallied 14 points and 11 rebounds for the struggling Linoleum Giants, who shot just 23-of-74 from the field and was blocked eight times.

    The Linoleum Giants fell to eighth place at 1-2, just ahead of winless squads NLEX, Cagayan Valley, and Informatics.

    The scores:

    Boracay Rum (87) – Viernes 18, Eguilos 13, Siruma 9, Cabrera 9, Tagarda 8, Ilagan 8, Taha 8, Sabellina 8, Arellano 2, Bandaying 2, Rosopa 2, Acibar 0, Monteclaro 0.

    Jumbo Plastic (67) – Mariano 14, Hayes 12, Najorda 8, Escueta 8, Tan 7, Vidal 7, Daquioag 3, Acosta 3, Del Rosario 2, Ignacio 2, Gomez 1.

    Quarterscores: 20-17; 37-38; 65-50; 87-67.
