They play the piano together, he threw her an 8th birthdtay party, she helped him cut down the net during the Big 10 Championship, all while he's trying to win the NCAA championship. Yes, you don't have to be a Michigan State fan to jump on the Adreian Payne and Princess Lacey bandwagon. The 6'10 senior dominates at center for the Spartans, and she's an adorable 8-year-old who has a rare form of nerve cancer. Two years after Adreian was visiting sick children in a hospital, he and Lacey are like family. You can bet Lacey will be rooting for her guy and the rest of his team on Friday when they play Virginia in the Sweet 16. Follow them both on Twitter for more on their adorable friendship.
