How high is a basketball hoop, well NBA officail size is 10ft. However out on the playgrounds, you will see them at 8 or 9 feet high. Many times kids in 1st and 2nd grade will play games on a lower 8 foot hoop www.wikianswers.com
A Standard Basketball hoop is 10ft for any basket ball game. In my opinion for college basketball the hoop should be raisd 12ft. Those professional NBA players are just way too tall it makes it too easy for them.
