The Pullman Native Helped lead Utah State to their first win in the NCAA Tournament since 2011

Sprinkle, a Pullman, Washington native, spent just one year at Utah State University (the 2023-2024 season). He led Utah State to the NCAA Men's Basketball March Tournament, where they won their first-round game against Texas Christian University before losing to the top-seeded Purdue Boilermakers. The win over Texas Christian was Utah State's first "March Madness" tournament win since 2011.
