There is no difference in the height of the hoop between high school, college, and pro basketball. They all use the same 10-foot height.
Since a basketball is round, the height of the basketball would also be its diameter. The diameter of a basketball is around 9 inches since there are minor differences in the size of basketball used by organizations (FIBA, NBA, etc). According to the related link below, the maximum circumference of the ball used in FIBA competition is 30.7 inches (78 cm) and in NBA competition is 29 inches.
