Found March 30, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
The Bulls are in Dallas to take on the Mavericks Saturday, so Joakim Noah ventured out to Cowboys Stadium Friday night to support his alma mater Florida Gators in the Sweet 16 matchup with FGCU.  Noah was so engulfed in the game that while he granted an interview to Craig Sager with under 4 minutes remaining, he was very much distracted, shouting at Florida in the middle of it, “Get a stop!” The Gators allowed an FGCU dunk and Noah was at a loss for words. The Bulls center also let on he’s “not too worried about Cinderella’s” and that Florida had to handle their business.  Which they did, winning 62-50 and advancing to the Elite 8 and greeted by Joakim Noah in the locker room.   photos via @OnlyGators, @AlligatorArmy
