Will we do better this round? Probably not!

NCAA Basketball: Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament Championship - Rhode Island vs VCU Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

In preparation for the rigorous gauntlets that are NCAA Tournament bracket pools, college basketball fans nationwide have been partaking in The Jerome. For the unfamiliar, The Jerome is a simple game: pick the conference tournament winners, win points. Easy enough.

Through the first week of tournaments, the leader in the clubhouse has 33 points and predicted five tournaments correctly. Here’s how some of our staff stacks up:

Kyle Cajero - 21 points
Austin Brown - 20 points
Russell Steinberg - 18 points
Cam Newton - 15 points
Mitchell Northam - 14 points
Chris Schutte - 14 points
JP Proulx - 6 points

See, we’re not any better at this than you are. Keep that in mind when you ask us for bracket advice this time next week.

Nonetheless, the tournaments for week one will be finishing up in the next few days while the week two tournaments get started. Hopefully we do better in week two. Here are our picks.
