Is your NCAA tournament bracket completely busted? Don't feel so bad, the same thing happened to some of Chicago's top athletes over the weekend.

With a variety of upsets including Mercer stunning Duke, Kansas falling to Stanford, Dayton knocking off Syracuse and No. 1 Wichita State getting ousted in the third-round, most of America's brackets are in shambles right now.

If all of your Final Four teams are still intact, consider yourself lucky. 

Take a look at how our local athletes fared (Hint: It's not pretty).

Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy

Update: Dunleavy has three of his Final Four teams left, but he picked Duke, who lost in the second-round, to win the National Championship.

Bulls forward Tony Snell

Update: Another Bull who still has three Final Four teams, but Snell picked his alma mater, New Mexico, to win the title. The Lobos lost to Stanford in the second-round

White Sox pitcher John Danks

Update: Danks went with an upset in picking his Longhorns to cut down the nets in April. Texas was destroyed by Michigan in the round of 32. 

Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel

Update: Hammel is the only one who's still in great shape. The Cubs starter has Florida and Arizona in the title game.
