Yes, It has the compound subject. (Students from Mr. Perry’s class/ Students from the basketball team)
But, you should not use "is" because the team is singular. Here, you have to consider the meaning. To avoid redundancy, the word 'students' has not be reiterated in front of "the basketball team". But consider, it actually means, "Students from the basketball team".
Therefore, the answer should be, "are".
