stall ball
 n.— «He also should tone down rhetoric on gambling, labor initiatives and social issues so as not to offend. With a big lead, it’s best to be somewhat bland, the experts said. In essence, he needs to concentrate on not making mistakes, or, in basketball parlance, to play “stall ball.”» —“Steve Beshear” by Dan Hassert Kentucky Post (Cincinatti, Ohio) Oct. 13, 2007.
