PORTLAND - Luke Ridnour sprints up and down the basketball floor with abandon, seemingly searching for, but never finding, an imaginary finish line underneath either basket.

Ridnour's boundless energy and incredible coordination are all the more remarkable because the University of Oregon guard is running all out while simultaneously dribbling a basketball and eyeballing the nine other players on the court. Along the way, he passes the ball behind his back mid-stride to a streaking teammate or tucks it under his arm and drives to the hoop past a string of momentarily flat-footed defenders. His athleticism suggests a double set of eyes, three hands and a motor.
