This is a sad day for the Michigan State family.

On early Monday morning in Orlando, Florida, former Michigan State basketball standout Adreian Payne was shot and killed. The police have arrested suspect Lawrence Dority at the scene.

Payne was a beloved member of the Spartan family, and is perhaps best known for his relationship with Lacey Holsworth in 2013-14. Payne is remembered for holding Lacey up to cut down the netws after MSU won the Big Ten Tournament that year, a few weeks before Lacey passed away due to neuroblastoma.
