On 15 April 2008, Schenscher's home town club, the Adelaide 36ers confirmed that they had agreed to terms with Schenscher for a one-year deal for the 2008-09 NBL season. Adelaide coach Scott Ninnis was ecstatic with the signing of Schensher: "I've received nothing but positive remarks from the public about the current direction of the club, and I am certain there are exciting times ahead. Luke only compliments the group we already have in place and anytime you add a player over 7 feet tall with NBA experience, he's going to have an impact". Schenscher averaged 17 points and 11 rebounds for the season. Receiving player of the week honours twice and player of the month for jan/feb. He had 19 points and 18 rebounds against Sydney, went up against Australian Boomers and ex NBA player Chris Anstey and had 17 points and 22 rebounds in one game and 21 points and 15 rebounds in another, he also hit 37 Points and 15 Rebounds against the Wollongong Hawks and if that was not enough he poured in a massive 33 points 20 rebounds against the Perth Wildcats. He is the first player in the NBL to record at least 30 points and 20 rebounds in a game since Mark Bradtke did way back in 1992. In a coincidence, Bradtke was also playing for the 36ers at the time.

In early September 2009, Schenscher signed a deal to join the Perth Wildcats of the Australian NBL for the upcoming 2009-10 NBL season. The addition proved pivotal early on in the season, with fellow big-man, veteran Paul Rogers, succumbing to a serious elbow injury less than a month into the season. Schenscher and the Perth Wildcats went on to win the NBL Championship with a 2-1 series wins over the Wollongong Hawks.

Schenscher signed on to play for the Townsville Crocodiles in the 201011 NBL season where he helped the Crocs to finish the regular season in 2nd place with a 17-11 record. He played in all 28 games as the starting centre and averaged 13.8 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 24.5 minutes per game, form that saw him selected to the 2011 All NBL Second team.

Luke Schenschers contract with Townsville expired at the conclusion of the 2010-11 season leaving him as a free agent. He was expected to either re-sign with the Crocodiles or to move home and re-join the Adelaide 36ers. Schenscher eventually chose to re-sign with the Crocodiles for the 2011/12 NBL season, with an option for the season after.

Schenschers start to the 2011-12 season was slow after he suffered a knee injury that slowed him down most of the season. Lukes play had dropped off from the previous season but the Crocs still made it to the Top 4 thanks to new import Eddie Gill. They were knocked out by the NZ Breakers.

2012-13 saw Luke return home to Adelaide to play for the 36ers. Although his play did not suit the play of the 36ers and he struggled to put up the same numbers he did previously. The 36ers were expected to contend for a title but finished last. Late in the season Schenscher fell down and landed on his back. He sat out the remainder of the 2012-13 season.
