Grambling State's Shakyla Hill recorded the fourth ever quadruple-double in NCAA Division 1 women's basketball history as Grambling State defeated Alabama State, 93-71 Thursday (PHL time).
Hill found her teammate Monisha Neal for a three pointer that gave her 10 assists, which went along with her 15 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 steals.
Hill's quad-double is the first in almost 25 years as Sonja Tate of Arkansas State logged 29 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals against Mississippi Valley State on Jan. 27, 1993.
Two years before, Ramona Jones of Lamar registered 10 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, and 12 steals versus Central Florida on Jan. 14, 1991.
The first-ever official quadruple-double was tallied by Veronica Pettry of Loyola Chicago put in 12 points, 10 rebounds, 22 assists and 11 steals on Jan. 14, 1989.
Lester Hudson of Tennesee-Martin shall be forever enshrined in the NCAA record books as he registered the lone quad-double in NCAA Division 1 men's basketball history.
In the NBA, there are only four instances of the quadruple-double, with the first one logged in by Nate Thurmond in 1974, and the last from David Robinson in 1994.
Hakeem Olajuwon did it twice in a month's span in March 1990, while Alvin Robertson rounds out the elite group, doing it in 1986.
