7 players are allowed on a high school basketball team
There are many, many people that play basketball, including elementary school kids, middle school kids, high school kids, college basketball players, NBA players, WNBA players, female players in schools, other countries, etc.
There is a lot, probably more than 12 though!
For American players it's not very likely. I don't believe it has ever happened. In fact almost all have gone to College, although there are a few exceptions. But since in Europe sports are mainly organized in clubs outside school, there are some players who never played High School Basketball. Steve Francis and many others did not play high school basketball.
basketball players don't have to play college. they can just make the jump from high school to the NBA
in all basketball games there are only 10 people total. 5 on each team
You can play high school basketball as long as you are in high school, which is an average of 4 years.

Approximately 535,570 boys play high school basketball in the United States. The number of high school girls that play basketball is about 436,100.
