Hill joins an exclusive club of NCAA Women’s players to achieve a quadruple double. The last triple double in NCAA Women’s basketball was achieved by Sonja Tate of Arkansas State against HBCU Mississippi Valley State University in on January 27, 1993 where she put up 29 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals. Before that, Ramona Jones of Lamar put up 10 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and 12 steals on January 14, 1991 against Central Florida. Veronica Pettry of Loyola Chicago put up 12 points, 10 rebounds, 22 assists and 11 steals and achieved the first official quadruple-double on Jan. 14, 1989. Jackie Spencer of Louisville, the fourth woman who got a quadruple-double, did it before Pettry but it wasn’t official because steals weren’t counted until the 1987-1988 year. Spencer put up 12 points, 12 rebounds, 14 assists and 10 steals against Cincinnati on Feb. 2, 1985. It seems like Quadruple Doubles go down in the Winter!
Big shout out to Miss Shakayla Hill for making history and showing the world that HBCU athletes can ball!
