Schmalkz, a 6-foot-3 forward, spent most of his time on the court last season as a starter.
He played in eight games this season and averaged 2.4 points and 2.2 rebounds.
He’s hoping to make the transition back to the court when he returns for the 2018-19 season.
The 6-3, 185-pound Schmalfz is a big, strong player with strong shooting range and strong passing.
He is one of the most skilled players on the team.
