Has anybody scored a quadruple double??

As I sat there watching Lightning do a number on Canberra tonight, I mumbled something to my wife that Tracy Gahan had again scored a double double and then towards the end of the game realised that she had in fact, scored a triple double.

"What are you talking about" asked my wife, thinking that I had had too many to drink. After explaining the achievement of something as great as a double double, let a alone a triple double, we finally agreed that this was something special.

The question that followed however, completely threw me "has anybody ever scored a quadruple double?"
Well I am pretty sure that in some social games I may have had the ten fouls to go with points, boards and assists, but has anybody ever scored a quad with points, boards, assists and steals in a professional game???

Thanks for that Rota, amazing figures!

interesting though, that there are none since '94. I wonder what has changed so much? More stars and greater rotation?

would appear that Gahan scored more that a triple double.

from the WNBL website
Adelaide's Coach Vicki Valk said that it was an awesome win with special mention to Tracy Gahan with a season best triple-double 11 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists and Mia Newley.' '

wonder what category Mia comes under

Dwight Howard might get close to a quadruple double with blocks being the 4th category but I think he just wouldn't get it as assist would be down.

Also Chris Paul could go close with steals being the 4th category.

I'm sure lots of players have achieved it if they include turnovers :P

Wilt chamberlain would have had like 50 if blocks and steals were recorded

Jason Kidd and AK47 would have to have been close a few times.

I can't see anyone else getting on the quad-double list for a while, the frontrunners would have to be Dwight, CP3 and Lebron though.

I wonder if Julius Hodge is capable of 10 steals...

Darnel once has 9 blocks in a half at the dome and then none in the second half.

That night i think he missed a quadruple by that one block and 3 steals

a double double is when someone gets stats that reflect 10 or more in two categories ie 10 points, 10 rebounds in any given game.

a triple double (hard to achieve) is where a player gets 10 or more in any three categories. these categories can be
rebounds, steals, assists, points, turnovers (but you don't want to get 10 turnovers)

A quadruple double is have a stat line that gives you more than 10 in four categories ie you have scored 16 points, taken 20 rebounds, made 11 steals and dished 12 assists in the one game you have performed an almost impossible feat that is why few players make the triple double and even fewer make the quad.

I remember Scott Arnold getting very close last season at the starplex he had numbers

25 pts 9 rebs 9 ast 7 steals

In saying he was close he didnt even get a double double but still was a fair effort

Um you can also get it with blocks.

Points, Rebounds, Steals, Assists, Blocks. (Turnovers but very suspect as to counting!)

A triple double including turnovers has been dubbed a "dirty triple".

Ive heard differently: Triple double with turnovers is a "triple bumble" a "dirty triple" is where one of the the doubles is in blocks .... ("dirty" referring to the dirty work involved!)
