First look at Logan in Unilever's Monday practice

Popularity of volleyball in Brazil impresses the methodical American

Logan was impressed with the amount of journalists that were present today to see her and the popularity of volleyball in Brazil.

 Logan: "Ten years ago I had my first experience in Brazil. A lot has changed. I changed also, people change in ten years. Volleyball is even stronger in Brazil now. You pass by the beach and get impressed with the number of people practicing this sport. With no doubt it is the second favorite sport in the country."

Logan added: "I love Rio. I have many friends here. It is very comfortable for me to have come to play here in the city. In 2006 I came to visit, but it was fast, and now I will get to know it better. Volleyball is very strong, it is the Olympic City and has a very strong league."

Rio talks of Logan

 

Bernadinho: Logan is a great player. She has many functions, will not be the highest scorer, the highlight will be in helping the team's defensive system, passing along Fabizinha. She will give consistency in the pass in the team.

Fabi: A player very technical, that every team would like to have a player like that, has all the basics as well. The expectation is great to be see her training with us. We know that she has played in several countries, has a sense of Portuguese, played in Brazil 11 years ago, and everyone is very eager to see her wearing the shirt of Unilever.

STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford alum and four-time Olympian Logan Tom will be recognized at Wednesday's women's volleyball match, the Pac-12 opener for sixth-ranked Stanford against California, at Maples Pavilion.

Tom and the U.S. Olympic indoor team captured the silver medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The U.S. fell in the gold-medal match to Brazil in four sets. Tom registered 11 kills and three blocks for 14 points against Brazil. It marked the second-consecutive silver medal for the U.S., which also fell to Brazil in the gold-medal match in 2008 in Beijing.

Tom was a four-time AVCA All-American at Stanford from 1999-2002. She led the Cardinal to two Pac-10 titles and the 2001 NCAA Championship. She was the 2001 and 2002 AVCA National Player of the Year and a two-time Honda Award winner for volleyball. A four-time All-Pac-10 selection, she was the MVP of the 2001 Final Four and a two-time Pac-10 Player of the Year (2001 & 2002).

Tom still ranks highly in the Cardinal record book, averaging the most kills per set (5.02) in school history and securing third place in career kills (1,939). She also holds the school record for aces per set (0.44) and is fourth all-time with 3.19 digs per set.
