Sensley, who ranks ninth on Hawaii's all-time scoring list and was a first-team All-WAC selection in 2006, has been working out on the Manoa campus recently. His achievements include NIT Quarterfinals in 2004, named All-WAC 1st Team in 2006, D-League Champion in 2010 with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, and D-League Southwest Division Champion in 2010. Played in 45 games in 2010 with 11.0 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 1.9 APG, 50% FGP, 35.3% 3PT, and 68.3% FT.
He was playing professional basketball in Greece this season, but is now playing for Bornova, Turkey. Sensley's devotion to basketball has allowed him to travel the world. Prior to his stint in Greece, he played in Belgium, Germany, Italy and Spain, and also logged time with the NBA Development League in Colorado and Texas. Last season, he was the starting center for the Rio Grande Vipers, who won the NBA D-League championship.
"If I had my choice, of course I'd like to stick with one team, but I'm still trying to find my niche," he said. "At this level, it's just a grind and you have to keep fighting until you can find a place to play."
