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.

It is an incredible gesture to see coaches and teams across the country united in the same cause.
