UAAP 2011 Preseason Jerseyvaluation: NU Bulldogs

In the preseason the National University Bulldogs are competing in NNOB practice jerseys like the FEU Tamaraws.

I like that the Bulldogs are mixing and matching their dark shorts with light tops. It reminds me of something the United States men's national basketball team did a lot in their scrimmages before the 2010 FIBA World Championship.

Here's their complete "away" look:

UAAP 2011 Preseason Jerseyvaluation: DLSU Green Archers

Just like the Ateneo Blue Eagles, the De La Salle Green Archers are using no-nonsense uniforms in preseason competition. You can never go wrong with just the school name, school seal, and player number on the front of the jersey.

However, I find DLSU's unis better-looking because of little details like the green waistband, the green trim for the arm and neck holes, and the Green Archer logo above the NOB.


[26 April 2011 Edit]

I dig the green "away" version more, if only because of the vertical stripes that the white "home" version does not seem to have:

Well, well, well, it seems the white "home" version also has those vertical stripes.

La Salle debuted a new jersey set last 4 June 2011. They beat the Ateneo Blue Eagles.

The Green Archers debuted the green version yesterday in a loss to the FEU Tamaraws.

UAAP 2011 Preseason Jerseyvaluation: FEU Tamaraws

You want a Spartan jersey? The Far Eastern University Tamaraws will give you a Spartan jersey.

Aside from going NNOB, FEU has done away with any school, manufacturer, or sponsor logo. Contrasted with the Tams' preseason jerseys last year, it's very refreshing.

Of course, it's a given that the Season 74 Tamaraw uni will look nothing like that practice jersey.

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.


[6 June 2011 Edit]

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

UAAP 2011 Preseason Jerseyvaluation: UST Growling Tigers

Since 2006 the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers have played in some of the tackiest basketball jerseys in recent UAAP history—season after season after season after season their uniforms featured a variety of tiger prints and heads. But they seem to have finally come around.

Last year UST and Accel did away with the tiger print trim. This season, judging from the Growling Tigers' uniforms in the ongoing FilOil Flying V Hanes Pre-season Premier Cup it looks like the tiger head is also now a thing of the ugly past.

We'll see once Season 74 opens in July whether the changes are for keeps.

Cue Batista Theme Song

Among all my friends, it seems only Squid is in a WrestleMania XXVII mood (or was into the World Wrestling Federation as a kid) like me.


I am disappoint, heh.

But things have a way of evening out, as I have awesome Facebook friends:
