Michigan State Hoops Joins Celebration of “Princess Lacey” at Breslin Center

These stories start to sting more when you have a young daughter. Yet, there is still something beautiful to be taken away from Thursday’s tribute to Lacey Holsworth in East Lansing, Michigan.
If you don’t know the story of “Princess Lacey,” who died a week ago at age 8 following a bout with cancer, check out this video on YouTube (tissues recommended) that describes her special relationship with Spartans’ star senior Adreian Payne.
Yesterday, the Michigan State basketball community gathered to mourn and pay tribute to a special girl. 2,500 people in Breslin Arena on MSU’s East Lansing campus. It’s not something you will see every day. It was at once saddening, powerful and uplifting.
Her friend Adreian’s “silent dunk” spoke volumes about her impact on the team.
