On the third episode of the Pac-12 Networks Basketball Podcast, Mike Yam and Kevin O'Neill discuss what Arizona's first Conference loss means for the rest of the Wildcats' season and KO shares a personal story from his time as an assistant coach at Arizona when they were ranked No. 1 and lost big to unranked New Mexico.  

The two close out the show with the weekly serialized segment of "The Recruit." This week KO and former Arizona standout Matt Muehlebach talk about the courting process between a high school basketball recruit and college recruiter of daily phone calls and contact. We even get a special reading of a few of the actual postcards KO sent to Matt almost thirty years ago as well as why he attached sticks of gum to each of them.
