Summary It's been two years since Michigan State basketball star Adreian Payne first met Lacey, an 8-year-old cancer patient known as "Princess Lacey". The two met years back when Payne was meeting with cancer patients in the hospital and they immediately struck it off as friends. Lacey became a huge supporter of Payne and the Michigan State Spartans , following their success over the last few seasons, and becoming a vocal and visual level of support at many of the Spartans' games recently.

Summary The Michigan State Spartans will always be contenders as long as head coach Tom Izzo is around, but things will be a little tougher this year with the losses of guard Gary Harris and center Adreian Payne. Valentine has incredible energy, which makes his life a lot easier when he has to play in the post and crash the boards. Valentine is an effective rebounder on both ends of the floor, as he made a lot of plays last season either starting the break or getting a put-back on the offensive rebound.
