CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A man from Alexander County has won $2000 in WBTV's Hoops 3 contest for being the best in our area at choosing the teams in a bracket for the Men's NCAA Tournament.

Harold Ashe of Taylorsville managed to beat out nearly 2,000 other people to win the extremely popular online contest.

Ashe was ranked #1 a few times during the tournament, but also fell as low as 157 and 1,049 at various points when his picks did not go the right way for him.

Ashe was propelled into the lead by picking Butler – a dark horse – to make it to the Final Four. He also picked Duke to be in the finals and win it all, which they did.

Even though he did not pick Butler to play Duke in the final game, it was still enough to win it all.

Congratulations Harold!!!
