Grambling State senior guard Shakyla Hill recorded her second career quadruple-double over the weekend. Hill finished with 21 points, 16 rebounds, 13 assists, and 10 steals in a 77-57 win against the University of Arkansas, Pine Bluff over the weekend. She becomes the first player in NCAA Division I history to record to quadruple-doubles in her career.

Hill’s first quadruple-double happened last year around this time on Jan. 3, 2018. In that game, she recorded 15 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, and 10 steals. She became the first player to reach that feat since Soja Tate of Arkansas State did it 25 years ago against Missippi Valley State.

Via The Undefeated:

“Right now I have all the emotions in the world running through my head,” said Hill. “I just feel really blessed. I know I keep saying that over and over, but I feel like I’m one of the most blessed individuals that I’ve come in contact with. I honestly cannot tell you. I feel like you can put in work day in and day out but God really has his hand on me, and he’s really just guiding me throughout all of this, and he helped me get to the point where I’m at now.”

Hill leads the Lady Tigers toward defending their SWAC Championship title and hopes to become the first historically black university to win a first-round NCAA Tournament game.
