Ateneo's team manager Paolo Trillo said the Blue Eagles will not be playing with Art Dela Cruz, Mark Tallo and Ryan Buenafe.
Buenafe will be out for Ateneo because of being overweight and other personal problems with the team. Art Dela Cruz on the other hand transferred to San Beda College and Mark Tallo on the other hand didn't enroll in the Ateneo this semester. He decided to go back to Cebu to play with his old team.
With the lost of Buenafe, Ateneo fans should not be worried that much because your current line-up can manage. You've done good in the FilOil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup and Fr. Martin Summer Cup without Ryan Buenafe. Kiefer Ravena and Greg Slaughter can fill in the void that will be left by Buenafe. Slaughter was cleared to play for the Blue Eagles because he fulfilled the 1 year residency law of the UAAP.
