KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- No. 1 Tennessee won its 18th consecutive game on Saturday, beating Florida 73-61.

Admiral Schofield said after the game, "We've got to get back to enjoying winning. We haven't been in this position before. It's been feeling like a business for us."

He mentioned a clock-in, clock-out mindset; which numb to the enjoyment of winning.

Head Coach Rick Barnes, though, offered one reason for why his team is not numb to the enjoyment of winning; the fans.

"I think our fans have embraced these guys. Our arena, there can't be a better setting in the country than what we have here right now. You go back to everything we're doing from the time we start. I really appreciate our fans and I know our players do too."

Tennessee will likely remain the No. 1 team in the country for a fourth-consecutive week. The AP poll is released every Monday around noon (ET).
