charity stripe
 n.— «In basketball parlance, it’s called the charity stripe. And China Spring was loving that line at the Class 3A basketball state tournament. The Lady Cougars were nearly automatic from the free-throw line, nailing 18 of 22 in the fourth quarter.» —“1 down, 1 to go for Lady Cougars” by Brice Cherry Tribune-Herald (Waco, Texas) Mar. 27, 2006.
