One of the endearing stories from the college basketball season was the friendship between Michigan State forward Adreian Payne and 8-year-old super fan Lacey Holsworth.

Today, the Michigan State community received word that Lacey lost her battle with cancer.

“She calls me her ‘Superman,’ but she’s the one who’s got the super strength,” Payne once told the Lansing State Journal.
