College basketball: Teams to wear gold laces in memory of ‘Princess Lacey’
"Coaches vs. Cancer" started this week and teams across college basketball are joining together in the fight against cancer.
A few teams will wear special gold laces for the #LaceUpforLacey campaign in memory of Lacey Holsworth, an 8-year-old Michigan State fan who lost her battle with cancer in April 2014.
Holsworth, who was known as "Princess Lacey" by Michigan State fans, formed a special friendship with former Spartans star Adreian Payne during the 2013-14 basketball season. Their story touched hearts throughout the country.
