Schenscher grew up in Hope Forest, South Australia, and played three years of basketball with the Australian Institute of Sport. He became the first high school player to represent the Boomers, the Australian men's basketball team.
He attended the Georgia Institute of Technology, commonly referred to as Georgia Tech, from 2001 to 2005, starting a majority of his career at the center position, and in the 2003-04 season along with Portland Trail Blazer Jarrett Jack was a member of the Yellow Jackets team which played in the NCAA championship game against the Connecticut Huskies where he received all Final Four Team honors.
After college, Schenscher attempted to make an NBA roster, and was a member of the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings 2005-06 pre-season rosters. He signed to the Fort Worth Flyers to play in the NBA D-League, ranking in the top 50 players for points per game and top 20 for rebounds per game. He signed a 10-day contract with the Chicago Bulls on March 5, 2006. He played 12 minutes, scored 4 points and grabbed 1 rebound in his first game. He earned a second 10-day contract as soon as the first expired, and was then signed for the remainder of the 2005-06 season by the Bulls on March 25.
It was widely believed Schenscher was to sign with the South Dragons to play in the Australian National Basketball League as the team's first contracted player for the 2006-07 season.  This did not happen and Joe Ingles was signed by the Dragons while Schenscher was with Chicago.
