adj.— «An end to zone defenses would mean an end to “stalling” tactics, but after all—it’s the kind of basketball you’d like to see. Do you want hully-gully play, wtih [sic] lots of scoring? Or do you prefer “pattern” basketball? Or ball-control basketball?» —by Bob Herdien Lima News (Ohio) Dec. 25, 1957. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
