Newtown High School's boys' basketball Division II state tournament game at Pomperaug of Southbury has been rescheduled again due to schools being closed in the aftermath of the March 7 storm. The second-round contest is now set for Saturday, March 10, beginning at 6 pm.

The game was originally scheduled for Thursday, March 8 and moved to the next night but three straight days of school cancellations has forced a Saturday makeup game time. Newtown hasn't played since a first-round win on March 6, and Pomperaug had an opening-round bye.

Newtown is the No. 21 seed in the bracket and Pomperaug is seeded fifth. The winner advances to face the winner of No. 4 Bristol Central and No. 13 Wilton in the quarterfinals, on Monday, March 12.
