Northwestern women's basketball welcomes the community to take part in a special event, the fifth annual Autism Awareness Game on Sunday, Dec. 1 at Welsh-Ryan Arena (2705 Ashland Ave, Evanston, IL 60208). The Wildcats take on DePaul at 2 p.m. in a key nonconference game, but more importantly, the teams will work together to raise awareness for an important cause. A tradition that began with Northwestern head coach Joe McKeown, the Wildcats annually partner with the Chicagoland chapter of Autism Speaks for the Autism Awareness Game. There will be a ceremonial tip-off with Autism Speaks, a quiet room available and free face painting and balloon artists on hand at Welsh-Ryan Arena. Be sure to stick around after the game as the Wildcats will sign autographs for fans. This is a cause that's very important to the Northwestern women's basketball team as a number of players, along with head coach Joe McKeown, have family members affected by autism.
