The factors to consider here would be: 1) The surface texture of the ball, in other words, is it smooth or rough or dimpled like a Golf ball? Drag is produced by the water passing over the ball's surface. 2) The material making up the ball's surface can be attractive or repellent to water molecules. Presumably a ball with an oily surface would spin better though I've never experimented.
