Definition Of:

Lassie

Sport DictionaryCUVC Volleyball Glossary
The name bestowed upon a defender who deliberately intercepts a ball travelling miles out of the back of court, usually shanking it even further up into the wall/stands/balcony. Named after the popular canine matinee idol (since they have rushed in to save the day - for the attacker, at least). Bombers will often incorrectly describe winning a point in this way as "going for the hands".
