Career triple-double leaders in women's college basketball

Sabrina Ionescu highlights: NCAA tournament top plays

The list of women's college basketball players with the most career triple-doubles begins with Sabrina Ionescu, whose 26 are nearly three times more than the next closest player (Lamar's Chastadie Barrs with nine from 2016 to 2019). But with Iowa's Caitlin Clark's dominant play through her first three seasons of collegiate hoops, the gap between Ionescu and the rest of the pack is shrinking.

Clark is now third all-time on the list of players with the most triple-doubles in Division I women's basketball history. 

The Hawkeyes star notched her 11th career triple-double — 41 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds — in the Elite Eight on March 26. Clark became the first DI player to record a 40-point triple-double in an NCAA tournament game. That performance followed a 30-point effort in the Big Ten tournament championship which lifted her to second all-time in career triple-doubles. 

Here's an updated list of the women's DI players with the most career triple-doubles, taken from NCAA record books here. You can also see an updated list of this season's triple-doubles on's statistics page here.
