A public memorial service has been scheduled for former Oklahoma basketball great and jazz musician Wayman Tisdale.

Tisdale’s service will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. at the BOK Center in Tisdale’s hometown of Tulsa. Tisdale’s band will play selections starting a half-hour before the service begins.


The 44-year-old Tisdale was a three-time All-American for Oklahoma in the mid-80s before playing 12 seasons in the NBA with Indiana, Phoenix and Sacramento. He died Friday at a Tulsa hospital after a two-year battle with bone cancer.

Tisdale will be buried at Memorial Park Cemetery in Tulsa.
