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.

Caitlin Clark led the Hawkeyes to their biggest win of the season — so far — Jan. 24. They defeated unbeaten Ohio State 83-72, behind Clark's 28 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds; it's the eighth triple-double of her college career.

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

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.
