Luke slings on the uniformTweet
VETERAN NBL championship-winning centre Luke Schenscher has donned the uniform again for a set of cameo appearances with former league club Singapore Slingers.
Schenscher, 34 and 216cm, played 217 NBL games with Adelaide 36ers (in two separate stints), Perth Wildcats and Townsville Crocodiles (in two separate stints) before retiring when the Crocs were shunted out of the league this season past.
Heading to Singapore on a day's notice to help out the Slingers when import Justin Howard went down with an injury, Schensch averaged 14.5ppg and 11.5rpg in two matches for the club.
Howard is due back in uniform for the Slingers' next game against the Saigon Heat on Sunday, bringing Schenscher home to Adelaide to start on the road to becoming a school teacher.
COOL HAND FOR LUKE: Luke Schenscher, probably didn't expect to end his career in Singapore.
Schenscher averaged 10ppg at 52 per cent and 6.2rpg for the Wildcats in 2009-10 when they won the NBL championship under coach Rob Beveridge, beating Illawarra Hawks.
His best NBL season was his rookie year with the 36ers in 2008-09 when he delivered 16.9ppg at 55 per cent, 10.8rpg, 1.5apg and 1.3bpg.
That followed a college career at Georgie Tech which included reaching the NCAA Final, and 20 NBA games at Chicago Bulls and 11 with Portland trail Blazers.
He also was a member of Adelaide's 2014 losing grand finalist, to Perth Wildcats.
One of the game's gentlemen, Schenscher also wore the green-and-gold for Australia in a decorated and successful career.
