WESTPORT — The Staples girls basketball team, which had its Class LL State Tournament opener postponed Monday, will now play Wednesday.

The Wreckers will visit Mercy of Middletown at 6:30 p.m.

The game had been put on hold because of a death in the family of a Staples player.

As a result, the tourney second round has been pushed back a day from Thursday to Friday. The winner of No. 22 Staples and No. 11 Mercy will play No. 6 New London at 6:30 p.m.
