So far, at least, that's the case for District 12's basketball teams with regard to the assorted PIAA state tournaments.
In '11, the D-12 entrants captured 10 of 15 first-round games for a winning percentage of .667. Then came last weekend and the first-rounders in all four, enrollment-based classifications and, guess what, the Pub/Cath guys actually did better, going 11-4 for .733.
Only Philadelphia Electrical and Technology Charter (14 points in AAA) and Samuel Fels (nine in AAAA) suffered no-doubt setbacks while Delaware Valley Charter (two in AA, in two overtimes) and St. Joseph's Prep (four in AAAA) were alive until the very last moments.
