2012 Filoil Flying V Hanes Preseason Cup Jerseyvaluation: Ateneo Blue Eagles

Yesterday Nico Salva of the Ateneo Blue Eagles Tweeted this photo of the jersey the team used in the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Filoil Flying V Hanes Preseason Cup earlier today:

If the uniforms look familiar, it's because they're identical to the dark jerseys the Blue Eagles used in the 2011 Filoil tournament, except that the Filoil and Burger King patches are gone while the Smart patch has been updated. It's almost as if they're letting the comebacking Ryan Buenafe use the gear he wasn't able to use in his "lost season" last year.

Here's the "home" version the Blue Eagles later changed into for their tournament-opening game against the Letran Knights (if I had to guess, I'd say there was some sort of miscommunication regarding the two teams' jersey assignments that's why the Ateneans had to change uniforms):
