 Man, y’all are gonna learn to put some respect on these women basketball players man! As a sports commentator for the Fort Valley State University Lady Wildcats, I see how these ladies put in work on the court! HBCU ball has especially hit a new peak in recent years and we’ve been gaining great athletes in both men and women basketball. Shakyla Hill, a Grambling State University Lady Tiger, is no different. She achieved a feat that most NBA players can’t say they achieved. Even ESPN gave her a nod!In Grambling State’s dominating 93-71 win over the Alabama State Lady Hornets, Hill garnered the fourth quadruple double in NCAA Women’s history. She’s also the first women’s player in HBCU basketball to achieve the feat! Hill put up 15 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals. Her last assist that solidified the quadruple double was a pass to fellow Lady Tiger Monisha Neal who hit a three-pointer.

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!
