Shakyla Hill

On Wednesday in a 93-71 win over the Alabama State Jaguars, Grambling State Lady Tigers’ guard Shakyla Hill put up one of the most amazing stat lines you’ll ever see. She posted 15 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals for only the fourth quadruple-double in women’s D1 history, and the first since 1993.

Unfortunately, there aren’t many highlights available of SWAC basketball games. But here’s a few clips of Hill, No. 5 in white, from Wednesday:

Behind her performance, Grambling won 93-71 over Alabama State as Hill upped her season averages to 12.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 5.6 steals. Afterward, here’s what she had to say about it:

“I feel really, really blessed. I feel like I owe it all to my coaches and my teammates because my coaches have been pushing me to do better in every aspect of the court and leave no aspect untouched, and also to my teammates because without my teammates I wouldn’t have got it at all. So I’m feeling really blessed right now. I’m emotional, actually.”

After ESPN’s SportsCenter account tweeted about it, Hill’s performance drew the eyes of one of the NBA’s triple-double kings, Rockets guard James Harden.

Harden dropped his own, less impressive version of a quadruple-double last year, recording 40 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds and 10 turnovers against the Raptors. So he knows what he’s talking about here. And Hill’s performance is certainly impressive. It helps show why she was named the preseason Southwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year, and why she’s a force to be reckoned with in women’s basketball.
