Hi there, 

Playing basketball would make you fitter and stronger but I can't think of 
a way it would make you taller.  Perhaps if they fed the players really 
well at half time???  Perhaps it could be a hormonal effect of competitive 
aggression or something strange like that.  Sorry, can't be of any help
