The six-foot-two senior at Butler High says, "It was good. I got to see the game and all of the fans, and I got to see the coaching in action. I got to see how Auburn gets after it out on the court and how they are going to be when they get back to full strength."
Lacey watched the action from near the Auburn bench as the Tigers made a dramatic comeback to defeat Mississippi State 65-62 after rallying from 19 points down midway through the second half. Auburn's rally, that included a 17-0 run, sent the sellout crowd into a frenzy.
The Butler High star is a high priority recruit for the Tigers and other colleges as well. He has a great shooting touch and the ability to make big plays when games are on the line.
Asked about what is happening with him on the recruiting front, Lacey says, "Recruiting is going good. I am still looking at Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky and UConn at this time. I like their style of play and the coaching."
Asked if he has a leader, Lacey says, "Everybody is pretty even. I am going to decide after I take my official visits."
The guard adds that his current focus is to try to lead Butler to a state championship. His team will be in action at home on Monday night in an area playoff game vs. West Limestone, a team Butler defeated the regular season.
With Lacey averaging 35 points and four assists per game, Butler is beating about everybody it plays featuring a 25-2 record with the exciting two-guard leading the way.
