Teen plays prep basketball game to honor slain twin brother

Twin brothers Demacio and Demario Bailey were inseparable to the point that Demario would even follow his basketball-playing brother to Johnson College Prep team practices.

That’s where they were headed over the weekend when Demario was shot to death under a South Side viaduct in a robbery gone wrong.

On Monday, Demacio returned to the court, playing to honor his brother while his mother made a passionate plea for senseless violence to stop.
