I represent a major magazine publication and we will be running an article on the best basketball uniforms in Philippine collegiate basketball (in 2009). Please post your "unbiased" opinions on who do you think has the best MBT uniform in the UAAP 2009 Season. A short explaination of your vote will be much appreciated. A vote on the worst uniform will also be welcomed. Many thanks.

Best: La Salle (Undoubtedly one of the best, well-made, and reminds me of Nike's SODs)
Worst: UE (I cannot understand the design and it really sucks, and what's the connection of the color black in the UE uniforms?)

I would have voted for UST but that would be bias and would disqualify my vote. I really like the Tiger head and stripes.

So my vote would go to NU.

I'm not high on the honeycombs on DLSU's uni.
Ditto with the blue/white thing on the sides of the shorts. What the F is that supposed to be?

pinaka-hindi maganda (a.k.a. panget) yung sa ust.

BEST: Ateneo. Biases aside, this is the best uniform in the league today. No unnecessary frills, no more black stripe, leaving us with a clean-looking, streamlined jersey that seems to share the same design heritage of the 2002-2003 Ateneo jerseys. This season's jersey looks great, whether if it's the light (white) or dark (blue) version. A suggestion to the people from Adidas, though: There's an official Ateneo font used in our letterheads, and which is used to render the school's name on the school website. The jersey will look nice with that too (nicer, I think, than using the distorted all-caps serif thing we currently have going on: it's not nice to see a name in a distorted manner, yes?).

2. La Salle (Light). The Green Archers' jersey is nice and clean looking too. I'm not too sold on the honeycomb/hexagon pattern though. Seems like an afterthought. Adidas should've used 3 stripes all throughout instead, I think. This year's shade of green also seems nicer than last year's (I'm not sure how much it has changed, but I think it's darker).

3. Adamson. Nice use of the different shades of blue, and very clean-looking too. The printing of the name "Falcons" down the sides of the shorts is a bit tacky (of course, this comes from someone whose school once had jerseys with the name of the team printed on the players' backsides). Otherwise, it's very well-done and the elements go nicely together.

4. FEU (light). This jersey's nice because I think they got the shades of all the colors just right, and the patterns look nice and dynamic. The light version looks nicer and classier than the dark one. I wonder what happened to last year's special jerseys made for FEU (and UE) which they used in the Final Four? Those were also nice.

5. UE (Light). UE's light jersey is nicer than its dark jersey. The black stripes seem to make sense on the white than on the red. I suppose that's because they didn't overdo it. I'm not too thrilled about how they rendered "UE" though.

6. NU. This one's actually pretty nice. Nothing too fancy, just nice and clean.

7. UP. This jersey isn't too bad, except that there are just a few things I find weird about it. I'm not too sold on how they rendered the name "UP" or the numbers. The piping near the sleeves is fine, although it's a bit weird that they split it into two sides/"halves" of maroon and green, something that gets even weirder when seen in how they've done it on the shorts. The nicest touch, I think, is the very subtle introduction of the yellow/gold piping to line the maroon and green elements.

8. UST. I like UST's "dark" (predominantly yellow) jersey more than their light one. Seems more coherent. The colors that they have to work with are nice (black, yellow/gold, and white). And we see how this plays out nicely in the way the school's name, the player's name, and the numbers are rendered, in the black piping and stripes, and in the nice white stripe down the side. What spoils it? The tiger stripes--they make the jersey look messy, and they're downright tacky. What's worse? The picture of the tiger. A nicely done tiger logo might be better, but the current thing, which looks like a bit of clip art, is pretty darned ugly. Whoever makes UST's jerseys doesn't even need to look that hard for a nice reference or peg for a jersey design used by a team called the Tigers. There's a school in New Jersey named Princeton, and their teams also go by the name "Tigers." Haven't seen any tiger stripes or tiger faces yet.

Your top 3 best jerseys were made by Adidas (yes even Adamson), next is Nike while Accel produced the worst uniform :)

Oo nga ano! Hahahaha.

I like the UP dark jersey more than the UP light jersey. If I had seen that before I made this list, it would be tied at #4 because it's nice. I can't make it go higher than #4, though, because I don't think black's a UP school color. :)

If anybody can post images of the jerseys here (again, for the benefit of those who are not able to watch the games) that would be great.
Kahit na alam na naman natin na yung Ateneo jersey parin ang dabest ;D (at most coveted, if I may add ;))

Ako rin, I also don't like it, and what's with the color black for UP? Black luck? And sana, they should use their 2008 black jerseys instead.

Sad to say, UP really has the worst uniform. In their white version, what's with the font for the school name and number? So weak. Then in their black version, those white lines going everywhere take out whatever pagka-astig the black color is meant to project.

Second worst, sorry to say, is UST's. Napakagulo.

My 3 best would be Ateneo, FEU and NU. La Salle's would have ranked higher if not for those catacomb patterns. UE is a strong 4th.

UST should consider using something like the gold jersey-black shorts alternate uniform used by the wizards.
