I don't know if it was a half-volley or not, but if not, this is what it would look like. At least against a harder shot.
If you've been talking about half-volleys this whole time then yes, it's common to hit topspin pickups on half-volleys.

However, I've never seen a pro hit a topspin volley unless they were super stretched and reaching for the ball. It's just not an effective shot.
