WNBA

Triple-doubles have been far more rare in the Women's National Basketball Association, WNBA than in the NBA; the games are shorter in the WNBA (40 minutes vs 48), there are fewer teams and fewer games in a season (34 vs 82), and the playing style in the WNBA is more of a team game than relying on star players. As of the 2021 WNBA season, 2021 season, eleven triple-doubles have been recorded in the WNBA — nine in the regular season and two in the playoffs. The following is a list of all WNBA triple-doubles, with the playoff triple-doubles highlighted in ''italics''.


NCAA Division I

*Most triple-doubles in a career: ** Men's: Kyle Collinsworth (BYU Cougars men's basketball, BYU, 2010–11, 2013–16) with 12 — six in 2014–15 BYU Cougars men's basketball team, 2014–15 and six again as a senior in 2015–16 BYU Cougars men's basketball team, 2015–16.

(Cincinnati Bearcats men's basketball, Cincinnati) had 10—five in 1958–59 and five in 1959–60. *** Although BYU was forced to vacate all but one of its wins in the 2015–16 season due to improper benefits provided by boosters to another BYU player, Collinsworth's triple-double record was not affected. ** Women's: Sabrina Ionescu (Oregon Ducks women's basketball, Oregon, 2016–2020) with 26 – four in 2016–17 Oregon Ducks women's basketball team, 2016–17, six in 2017–18 Oregon Ducks women's basketball team, 2017–18, eight in 2018–19 Oregon Ducks women's basketball team, 2018–19, and eight in 2019–20 Oregon Ducks women's basketball team, 2019–20. *Consecutive triple-doubles: In Division I men's play, David Edwards (Texas A&M Aggies men's basketball, Texas A&M), Penny Hardaway (Memphis Tigers men's basketball, Memphis State), Tony Lee (Robert Morris Colonials men's basketball, Robert Morris), Gerald Lewis (basketball), Gerald Lewis (SMU Mustangs men's basketball, SMU), Shaquille O’Neal (LSU Tigers basketball, LSU), and Kevin Roberson (basketball), Kevin Roberson (Vermont Catamounts men's basketball, Vermont) each recorded two consecutive games with a triple-double. :In women's play, Danielle Carson (Youngstown State Penguins women's basketball, Youngstown State), Kim Rhock (Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers women's basketball, Mount St. Mary's), Nicole Powell (Stanford Cardinal women's basketball, Stanford), Ashley Schrock (Cleveland State Vikings women's basketball, Cleveland State), Claire Faucher (Portland State Vikings women's basketball, Portland State), Brittney Griner (Baylor Lady Bears basketball, Baylor), and Ny Hammonds (Charlotte 49ers women's basketball, Charlotte) have accomplished this feat once. Powell did so in successive rounds of the NCAA tournament. Sabrina Ionescu has done so twice, and Chastadie Barrs of Lamar Lady Cardinals basketball, Lamar has done so three times, making them the only D-I players of either sex to do so more than once. Barrs is the only player to have recorded consecutive triple-doubles twice in a single season, doing so in 2018–19 Lamar Lady Cardinals basketball team, 2018–19. :* Two women are the only NCAA players of either sex in any division to have recorded three consecutive triple-doubles. The first was Carson in the 1985–86 season. She began by recording 12 points, 10, rebounds, and 12 assists against Akron Zips women's basketball, Akron on November 29, 1985. The following day, she recorded 20 points, 12 rebounds, and at least 20 assists against Kent State Golden Flashes women's basketball, Kent State (her exact assists total in that game is unknown). Finally, on December 2 against Cleveland State, Carson recorded 26 points, 15 rebounds, and 14 assists. Barrs matched the feat in the 2018–19 season. She began with 17 points, 10 rebounds, and 12 steals on January 9, 2019 against 2018–19 New Orleans Privateers women's basketball team, New Orleans. Next, on January 12, Barrs had 10 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists against 2018–19 Central Arkansas Sugar Bears basketball team, Central Arkansas. Finally, on January 16, Barrs recorded 15 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists against 2018–19 Southeastern Louisiana Lady Lions basketball team, Southeastern Louisiana. *Most triple-doubles in a single season: ** Men's: Kyle Collinsworth (BYU), with six – performed twice: in the 2014–15 season, and again in 2015–16. ** Women's: Sabrina Ionescu (Oregon), with eight in the 2018–19 season. * Triple-doubles in NCAA tournament history: :: NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, Men's ::: The NCAA first recorded individual assists in men's basketball in 1950–51, but stopped doing so after the 1951–52 season, and did not resume keeping track of assists until 1983–84. Blocks and steals were first recorded in 1985–86. Thus, the NCAA officially records nine tournament triple-doubles. However, many tournaments had included assists, steals and blocks in their official boxscores prior to that time, so unofficially this has occurred 17 times. Only three pre-1986 triple-doubles are included below. :: NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament, Women's ::: In women's basketball, the NCAA began keeping track of assists in 1985–86, then blocks and steals in 1987–88, so officially this has occurred 14 times. However, many tournaments had included assists, steals and blocks in their official boxscores prior to that time, so unofficially this has occurred 17 times. All three triple-doubles that preceded the NCAA's official inclusion of the relevant statistics are included below. *Others **Kalara McFadyen of Memphis Tigers women's basketball, Memphis achieved perhaps the most unusual triple-double in history, and she did it without scoring a point or even attempting a shot from either the field or the free-throw line. On February 3, 2002, in a women's Division I game against Charlotte 49ers women's basketball, Charlotte, she had 12 assists, 10 steals, and 10 rebounds.


FIBA European Champions Cup and EuroLeague

Much like the WNBA, there are a few reasons why triple-doubles are far more rare in the EuroLeague than in the NBA. The games are 40 minutes long—8 minutes shorter than in the NBA—there are 30 games in a season compared to the NBA's 82, and various rules—such as those on assists—are stricter than that of the NBA. As of 2018–19 EuroLeague, 2019, only seven triple-doubles have been recorded in Euroleague history, and only three in the modern era of Euroleague basketball (since 2000–01 Euroleague, 2000). The following is a list of all seven of these triple-doubles:


Quadruple-double

. The first American female player above the high school level to officially record a quadruple-double was Ann Meyers, who achieved this feat in 1978 while playing for the UCLA Bruins women's basketball, UCLA Bruins, when women's college sports were under the auspices of the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women, AIAW. The first male player in NCAA Division I history to record a quadruple-double was Lester Hudson in 2007. The first Division I women's player to have officially recorded a quadruple-double since the NCAA began sponsoring women's sports in 1981–82 was Veronica Pettry of Loyola Ramblers women's basketball, Loyola–Chicago in 1989. Only three other women have done so since, and the only player to have recorded a quadruple-double since 1993 is Shakyla Hill of Grambling State Tigers and Lady Tigers, Grambling State, who accomplished the feat in 2018 and 2019. An earlier player, Jackie Spencer of Louisville Cardinals women's basketball, Louisville, accomplished the feat against Cincinnati Bearcats women's basketball, Cincinnati during the 1984–85 season, but the NCAA did not record assists and steals throughout Division I women's basketball at that time. The Metro Conference, then home to both schools, did officially record these statistics, but the NCAA did not start doing so until 1985–86 for assists and 1987–88 for steals.

Quadruple-doubles have only been possible since the 1973–74 NBA season, 1973–74 season, when the NBA started recording both blocked shots and steals. It is often speculated by observers that other all-time greats, namely

could conceivably have had quadruple-doubles. West's biography at NBA.com claims that he once recorded an unofficial quadruple-double with 44 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 blocks. A biography of Wilt Chamberlain claims that he also recorded an unofficial quadruple-double in Game 1 of the 1967 Eastern Division Finals against the 1966–67 Boston Celtics season, Boston Celtics, when he had 24 points, 32 rebounds, 13 assists and 12 blocks. The four players listed below are the only players who have officially recorded a quadruple-double in an NBA game. Except for Thurmond, who retired before the award was established in 1983, all of them have won NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award, NBA Defensive Player of the Year at least once. Robertson is the only player who was not a Center (basketball), center to accomplish the feat, doing so with steals rather than block (basketball), blocks. Only seven other players (Drexler did it twice) have managed to finish with triple-doubles and a total of 9 in a fourth statistical category (statistical categories in which they fell short are in bold): Notes * Bird sat out the entire fourth quarter. After three quarters, head coach K. C. Jones informed Bird that he was one steal away from a quadruple-double and asked if he wanted to stay in the game. Bird declined, saying that he "already did enough damage." * Olajuwon was credited with 9 assists in the original box score. However, after Rockets officials reviewed the game tape and discovered what they believe was an uncredited assist in the first quarter, they revised the box score, crediting Olajuwon with 10 assists and the third quadruple-double in NBA history. NBA's director of operations, Rod Thorn, requested to review the tape. After reviewing the tape, the league disallowed Olajuwon's quadruple-double and announced that his original line—with 9 assists—is official.

Quintuple-double

A quintuple-double is a single-game performance by a player who accumulates a double-digits in all five statistical categories—points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots—in a single game. There are only three known quintuple-doubles, all done at the girls' high-school level. The first was recorded by Tamika Catchings of Duncanville High School (Duncanville, Texas) with 25 points, 18 rebounds, 11 assists, 10 steals and 10 blocks in 1997. The second was by Alex Montgomery of Lincoln High School (Tacoma, Washington), Lincoln High School (Tacoma, Washington), who had 27 points, 22 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 steals, and 10 blocks in January 2007. The third was by Aimee Oertner of Northern Lehigh High School (Slatington, Pennsylvania), who had 26 points, 20 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 steals, and 11 blocks on January 7, 2012. It is rumored that

recorded a quintuple double on March 18, 1968 with 53 points, 32 rebounds, 14 assists, 24 blocks, and 11 steals. However, in that era of the NBA steals and blocks were not recorded and those numbers were approximated by reporter and statistician Harvey Pollack who spectated the game.


Five-by-five

A five-by-five is a performance in which a player accumulates a total of five in five statistical categories—points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks—in a single game. Statistics for steals and blocks were not kept in the NBA until the 1973–74 season, so all NBA five-by-fives are known only from that season onward. Hakeem Olajuwon (six times) and Andrei Kirilenko (three times) are the only players to have recorded multiple five-by-fives (based on records since the season). Both are also the only players to record six-by-fives (at least six in all five statistical categories). Only twice has a five-by-five coincided with a triple-double (both by Olajuwon, one of which was 1 assist shy of a quadruple-double) and only three times has a player recorded a five-by-five without registering at least a double-double (two by Kirilenko and one by Marcus Camby).


Facts

All facts based on data since the season: *Greatest five-by-fives (most of each stat): Hakeem Olajuwon, on March 10, 1987, became the first in NBA history to record a six-by-five (at least 6 each of all five statistics: points, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals). It took nearly twenty years for the second official occurrence in NBA history. Andrei Kirilenko, on January 3, 2006, recorded a six-by-five against the Lakers. Though his numbers were not quite as impressive as Olajuwon's, Kirilenko performed the feat in regulation. *Most five-by-fives in a career: Hakeem Olajuwon leads all players with 6 career five-by-fives. Andrei Kirilenko, with 3, is the only other player with more than one career five-by-five. *Most five-by-fives in the same season: Only twice has a player recorded two five-by-fives in a season. Olajuwon in the 1993–94 season, and Kirilenko in the 2003–04 season. *Quickest pair of five-by-fives: Kirilenko performed a five-by-five on December 3, 2003, and completed another just a week later, on December 10, 2003. The second-quickest five-by-fives were completed by Olajuwon on November 5, 1993, and another, 55 days later, on December 30, 1993. *Youngest player: Kirilenko's first NBA five-by-five came on December 3, 2003, making him the youngest to record a five-by-five at age . *Oldest player: Olajuwon is the oldest player to record a five-by-five. His last career five-by-five came on December 30, 1993, at which time he was old. *Six-by-fives: Olajuwon and Kirilenko are the only players to achieve this feat in NBA history.
