    My friend says: Wow! That girl is so tall, do you think she plays basketball?

    I say: If you're so interested, you should go up and ask.

    VS

    If you're so interested, why don't you go up and ask.

    Are both okay?

    You need to put a question mark at the end of "... why don't you go up and ask?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would use "ask her" instead of "go up and ask".

    Try "curious":

    Wow! That girl is so tall, do you think she plays basketball?
    If you're so curious, why don't you go up and ask her?
