Ah, I can't believed I missed this post!

We did a basketball robot a while back. It was a biped, and it used a spring "shooter" to launch the ball up. A lot of motors were used: one to grip the ball, one to pull it up, two for biped movement, one to balance the biped, one to pull back the launcher. We used a solder sucker as the launching mechanism, and a solenoid to trigger the button.
