heavy ball
 n.— «Patak hits what is known in volleyball parlance as a “heavy ball”—a shot without the usual top spin that is a sensitive blocker’s nightmare. “It’s like a knuckleball with a lot of heat on it,” UH coach Mike Wilton said.» —“Warriors turn back Gauchos in four” by Stephen Tsai Honolulu Advertiser (Hawaii) Apr. 2, 2005.
