I´m not familiar with the basKet internals.
But I see two possible ways to do this from an ownCloud perspective. 
basKet could store files with notes in a folder which is synced with ownCloud.
This has the advantage that you can also access and edit the notes with the ownCloud ACE editor as long as there are normal text files.

The other option for basKet is to use the ownCloud key/value storage. This requires to use the libattica and the OCS api to store data in ownCloud. This has to be implemented in ownCloud of course.

I´m don´t know what the best option is. This is something the basKet developer have to answer.
