Winter Haven, Florida. An eclectic, smaller town which is essentially a suburb of Central Florida’s largest city: Orlando. It’s nothing super fancy to look at. There aren’t tons of travelers flocking to Winter Haven to experience the sights and sounds of its petite downtown. But there are people flooding in for a different reason. One that may seem strange to one who didn’t enjoy the Danish toy brand as a child. Winter Haven is home to Legoland.

This is a fact I’ve been reminded of many times throughout my short stay (I’ve been greeted my Mr. Legoworth every morning walking into the hotel lobby). And while it may be a stretch, I feel like the basketball programs who have been working their hardest to prove their worth this weekend resemble a Lego set. They’re a combination of seemingly random pieces who have come together to create some incredible basketball magic. There’s the struggle to put it together sometimes, but when all of the pieces align, it creates a colorful, fantastic work that transcends all other artforms. We’ve turned the AdventHealth Fieldhouse into our own Legoland this week. So, welcome in. We’re excited you’re here.

Here’s your recap of Day 1
