After having two of his Final Four teams lose in the first round, Hugh Gillis thought his bracket in the Daily Courier's Pick 'N' Roll contest, sponsored by Affordable Truck & RV, was destined to lose.
But the Grants Pass resident correctly picked Baylor to beat Gonzaga in Monday's NCAA men's basketball championship, giving him the most points in the Pick 'N' Roll contest and the $250 grand prize.
Gillis won because many entrants chose Gonzaga to win the title and few picked Baylor.
"I like to go with the underdog," he said. "I liked the way (Baylor) played. I saw them a couple times this season. They play great defense."
Gillis also got a little lucky that almost no one picked the first-round upsets that derailed two of his Final Four picks, Texas and San Diego State.
"After they lost, I figured I was out of it," he said.
But Gillis, unlike nearly every other entrant in the contest, correctly picked Oregon State to make it to the Elite Eight.
"I'm a Beaver believer," he said. "I'm one of those guys always wearing the OSU hat.”
Gillis won the contest with 395 points out of a possible 595. Pick 'N' Roll entrants receive points for each correct pick they make in the tournament.
Tex Goldfein of Medford finished second with 385 points, and Bill Cowell of Rogue River was third with 380. All of the top three chose Baylor to win the title.
