He beat out defending champion Eric Decker in the finals at the end of a 64-man tournament. Contest organizer Mariner Duck Guy (who does an amazing job putting this together every year) wrote this on our Discussion Board:

In the closest Championship Match ever, the winner of King of the Hardwood VIII:

Jake Dalton 50.4%
Eric Decker 49.6%
