UAAP 2011 Preseason Jerseyvaluation: ADMU Blue Eagles

The Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles are rocking these uniforms in two tuneup tournaments, the Fr. Martin Summer Cup and the FilOil Flying V Hanes Pre-season Premier Cup.

Those are practice jerseys, much plainer than what the Blue Eagles wore this time last year. There's no manufacturer's logo, and except for the NOBs and the Smart decals they're exactly like the reversible unis Ateneo students wear for PE classes or IAC tournaments.

Still, those drab jerseys are memorable if only because highly touted rookies Kiefer Ravena and Greg Slaughter wore them in their TV debuts as Blue Eagles. We all know how that game went.

The Blue Eagles unveiled a new jersey set in their game against the DLSU Green Archers last 4 June 2011.
