John Petty embraces maturation process, continues to be three-point specialist

Alabama freshman guard John Petty’s three-point shooting has won Alabama numerous games this season. At home against No. 11 Auburn on Jan. 17, Petty hit eight threes to propel Alabama to an important home win. While his shooting gives Alabama an edge, his shot selection has been questionable in certain situations. Taking the right shot at the right time has been part of his growing up process. He’s embraced constructive criticism and continues to mature in his shot selection.
