Larry Sengstock (born March 4, 1960 in Maryborough, Queensland) is a retired Australian basketball player. Larry played for Lang Park Basketball club as a junior. He was one of the star players in the early years of Australia's fledgling National Basketball League (NBL). Sengstock played 456 NBL games over 18 seasons, starting with the St. Kilda Saints and later playing for the Brisbane Bullets, Gold Coast Rollers and North Melbourne Giants.

Sengstock won five NBL championship rings, his first coming in 1979 with St Kilda. He was named Most Valuable Player in the 1979 Grand Final; twenty years later, the Grand Final MVP award would be renamed the "Larry Sengstock Medal" in his honour.

Sengstock would also win an NBL championship in 1980, again as a St. Kilda Saint. That year he was also named to the Australian Olympic team for the first time and played for the Boomers in Moscow. He also represented Australia at the Los Angeles, Seoul and Barcelona Olympic Games, and at four FIBA World Championship tournaments (1978, 1982, 1986, 1990).

As a member of the Brisbane Bullets he won two more NBL titles in 1985 and 1987, and won his last title as a North Melbourne Giant in 1994.

Sengstock scored 5466 career points and recorded 3221 rebounds; he is tenth on the NBL's all-time rebounding list entering the 2003/04 season.

He was named to the All-NBL First Team in 1982, and was a unanimous selection for the NBL's Hall of Fame in 2001.
