HUNTSVILLE, Ala. ( – A preview of Alabama’s basketball will be on display in Brooklyn this April.

Crimson Tide signees John Petty of Mae Jemison in Huntsville and Collin Sexton of Pebblebrook (Ga.) were both recently selected to play in the Jordan Brand Classic on April 14 at the Barclays Center.

Petty knows which he would prefer.
