EAST LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — A Celebration of Life event for a Spartan basketball fan who had a special relationship with player Adreian Payne will be held next week.

Lacey Holsworth died earlier this week after a battle with cancer.

“Princess Lacey” first met Payne two years ago when the Michigan State University basketball team visited her in the hospital. She remained close with Payne and was often seen on the sidelines at MSU games.

A post on her Instagram account Friday said a Life Celebration would be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 17 at the Breslin Center on MSU’s campus.

“Please come to remember Lacey wearing your bright colors and smiles. Tiaras optional,” the post read.

A tweet from the official MSU Basketball account said doors would open at 6 p.m. and that parking would be free.
