    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern junior forward/center Alex Cohen is featured in the "Faces of the Big Ten" PSA campaign, which highlights student-athletes from throughout the conference. Each student-athlete featured in this campaign plays a variety of sports and has a unique story aside from their accomplishments on the court or playing field.

    Cohen is a starter on the 2013-14 NU women's basketball team and is very active off the court as president of the Autism Speaks U chapter at Northwestern University. This cause hits close to home for Alex and her family as her older brother Aaron has autism. Alex and the entire NU women's basketball program do their part every year to to draw attention to the cause with the annual Autism Awareness Game and the team regularly participates in the Walk Now for Autism Speaks event in the spring.

    Cohen is featured in the latest "Faces of the Big Ten" commercial which can be watched below (or with this YouTube link) and will air on the Big Ten Network.
