TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A public memorial service has been scheduled for Thursday former Oklahoma basketball great and jazz musician Wayman Tisdale.

The 44-year-old Tisdale was a three-time All-American for Oklahoma in the mid-1980s 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.
