Kristina Keneally, chairman of the Basketball Australia board, hailed the work done by Sengstock and said: "Larry took on the CEO's job in 2009, just months after NBL clubs and State and Territory Associations passed a unanimous vote for the unification of basketball at all levels under the governance of Basketball Australia.
"He has worked hard to make that unification a reality - drawing together the constituent members of BA and creating a single voice for the sport. Pleasingly, these stronger connections across the basketball family - players and fans - has led to increased attendance at NBL and WNBL games, and increased viewership on television."
Sengstock was a highly decorated basketball player during his playing days. He won the NBL Championships five times and played 456 matches during the course of his career. In recognition of his services to the local game, he was inducted into the NBL hall of fame in 2001.
