WESTPORT, Conn. – Staples High School's girls basketball team opens the Class LL playoffs Monday when it travels to meet Hall of West Hartford for a 7 p.m. tipoff.

The Wreckers went  11-7 in the league, but Darien earned the No. 8 playoff spot for the conference on a head-to-head tiebreaker.

Staples is led by senior Center Jess Coelho, who averages 14.5 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. Junior guard Erica Stein is the team’s second-leading scorer with 12.5 points per game. She also averages 3 assists. Nikki Bukovsky is averaging 11 points a game for the Wreckers.

The winner of Monday’s game advances to the second round Thursday against the winner of fourth-seeded Career Magnet and No. 29 Southington.
