MANILA--A marked man in the first three games of the PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals, TNT's Jayson Castro finally found his stroke in Game 4 on Saturday night.

The spitfire point guard dropped a season-high 38 points with 11 assists and seven rebounds in what would be the KaTropa's series clinching win against Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.

That performance made him the Accel-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week as announced on Monday.

"Yung mindset ko is to be aggressive even if nagsta-struggle ako sa tira ko," said Castro, who edged San Miguel players Junemar Fajardo, Alex Cabagnot, and Chris Ross for the weekly citation.

The KaTropa and the Beermen will collide in the finals beginning Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
