TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A public memorial service has been scheduled for former Oklahoma basketball great and jazz musician Wayman Tisdale.
According to the Web site of Biglow Funeral Directors, 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.
