Jay Bilas now follows 1 person on Twitter. You’ll never believe who it is

by 5 years ago

On Feb 1st, 2011, ESPN analyst Jay Bilas joined Twitter. Three years later he has amassed 658,000 followers. He followed no one, not a single soul…until today. Meet Jay’s first follower, @adorablelacey, an 8-year-old cancer survivor adopted by the Michigan State basketball team. We’ve written about Lacey Holsworth a few times, most recently on Sunday when she helped the Spartans cut down the nets in Indianapolis.

Naturally, Lacey was quite shocked when she heard about her new follower.

Lacey had a setback recently, suffering a seizure on Wednesday. But she’s up and around already, fighting like she always has. Here’s how you can help Lacey and her family.
