PASIG--UP-QRS-JAM guns for the final twice-to-beat advantage in the PBA D-League Aspirants Cup quarterfinals as it battles AMA on Thursday at the Ynares Sports Arena.

Currently a half-game behind the Tanduay Rhum Masters for fourth place, the Fighting Maroons can snatch the last playoff incentive with a win against the Titans at 2 p.m.

UP-QRS-JAM, which can end up tied with Tanduay at 5-3 at the end of the eliminations, owns the tiebreaker by virtue of a 102-86 win on Jan. 26.

In the main game at 4 p.m. Cafe France-CEU faces Phoenix-FEU in a match that could either clear up or complicate the top seed race.

The Bakers can secure the first place in the playoffs with a win against the Accelerators, who need to beat the Bakers and the Mindanao Aguilas on Monday to have a better chance of finishing on top.
