Eight-year old Lacey Holsworth was a child who became an inspirational figure for the Michigan State basketball team, due to her lengthy fight with brain cancer. The player she grew closest to was forward Adreian Payne, whom she frequently referred to as her “Superman.” On Tuesday it was announced that Holsworth passed away, with the news affecting those both within and outside of the Michigan State program.
A candlelight vigil was held in Holsworth’s honor at the Rock on the Michigan State campus Wednesday night, and head coach Tom Izzo gave an emotional speech to those in attendance.
