EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — An 8-year-old Michigan State basketball fan whose battle with cancer inspired the team’s players, coaches and many more beyond the hardwood is to be honored by thousands of her closest friends at a memorial service in East Lansing.

Lacey Holsworth’s family wants those attending the event Thursday at the Breslin Center basketball arena to wear bright colors and smiles in celebration of her life.

Lacey died at her home in nearby St. Johns on April 8. The little girl affectionately known as “Princess Lacey” had neuroblastoma, a nerve-cell cancer. She wore a blond wig because chemotherapy took her hair.

Lacey met Michigan State basketball star Adreian Payne during one of her hospital stays, and their friendship quickly blossomed. She became a valued member of the Spartan family.
