With no celebrity picking Connecticut to win it all, LL Cool J edged out NCIS: Los Angeles cast mate Eric Christian Olsen, who finished second with 76 points and a 40-23 record.

LL Cool J, who stars as Senior Special Agent Sam Hanna on the CBS hit drama, put together an impressive run, going 44-19 overall with 97 points . He missed on Michigan State and Arizona in the Final Four, but had Kentucky winning it all.

Olsen, who plays Detective Marty Deeks, ended up in second place after picking Florida to win it all.

There was a three-way tie for third with six celebrities, including CBS This Morning co-anchor Gayle King. She moved all the way up from 27th place after the Sweet 16 by picking Connecticut in the championship game. Unfortunately, King had Duke winning it all, which didn't allow her a chance at first place.
