Incredible story at Michigan State

Throughout the NCAA tournament the story of  Lacey Holsworth, an 8-year-old cancer patient known as "Princess Lacey" who forged a bond with the Michigan State basketball team and star forward Adreian Payne was told and re-told.  This story came to a tragic end this week when Lacey finally lost her battle with cancer.  This story has so many angles and one that would probably get lost in the shuffle is the maturation of Payne.  He was an excellent high school player who played his school basketball in Dayton, Ohio but while at Michigan State he not only improved as a player but he became a symbol of a student-athlete in Tom Izzo's program.  Great story - you need to check it out. http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/10754327/michigan-state-spartans-adreian-payne-mourning-loss-princess-lacey-cancer
