(Tulsa-AP) -- Fresno State will be without its best player when the Bulldogs play at Tulsa tomorrow night.

Fresno coach Jerry Tarkanian says junior forward Chris Jeffries has a slight cartilage tear in his right knee and won't make the trip.

The 6-foot-8 Jeffries is considered a likely first-round N-B-A draft pick and is rated as the eleventh best prospect in the nation by one service.

Tulsa will be trying to break a six-game losing streak to Fresno when the two play in the Western Athletic Conference game Thursday.
