There's A Picture, So It happened

It's always jarring to see players from other collegiate squads wearing Blue Eagle uniforms. In the recent Hong Kong tournament where the Ateneo-Adamson selection finished fourth, for instance, Alex Nuyles of the Soaring Falcons wore jersey No. 6, which has belonged to Ateneo's Emman Monfort for the past two years:

Similarly, Lester Alvarez wore Tonino Gonzaga's No. 7 while Eric Camson used Ryan Buenafe's No. 13. Jan Colina wore jersey No. 9, which no Blue Eagle has used in the past three UAAP seasons and perhaps even longer.

I wonder whose last names were actually written on the backs of those jerseys.

The last time I saw something similar was in 2004. In that year's UAAP-NCAA All-Star Showdown, DLSU Green Archer Mark Cardona donned an Ateneo warm-up jersey while Blue Eagle JC Intal wore a DLSU shirt.
