Cunningham, Oregon State upend Huskies

Feb 4, 2011 - 6:46 AM Corvallis, OR (Sports Network) - Jared Cunningham scored 19 points to lead the Oregon State Beavers over the 20th-ranked Washington Huskies, 68-56.

Calvin Haynes added 11 points and seven rebounds for the Beavers (9-12, 4-6 Pac-10), who beat a top-25 team for the first time since January 12, 2006 when they knocked off then-No. 24 Arizona.

Devon Collier donated nine points and nine boards for Oregon State, which snapped a three-game skid.

"It was a good week of practice," Haynes said. "We came in focused and our defense was really there. Coach really emphasized that we needed to rebound, and we did. We outrebounded them, we didn't make free-throws other than down the clutch but the game plan really was rebound, rebound, rebound."

Scott Suggs finished with 18 points for the Huskies (15-6, 7-3), who have lost two in a row. Matt Bryan-Amaning chipped in with 12 points and 10 boards.

Washington had won its previous eight meetings with Oregon State.

The score was tied at 32-32 after 20 minutes of play and things remained tight in the second half.

Holding a 54-52 lead with 4:49 to play, the Beavers pulled away with a 9-2 run. Cunningham sparked the surge with a layup, and following two Washington turnovers, Omari Johnson made a layup of his own to make it 58-52.

Isaiah Thomas made two from the foul line for the Huskies to cut the gap to four with 2:46 left. Haynes made a free throw and recorded a three-point play around Suggs' missed three-pointer to make it 62-54. Haynes then capped the burst with a free throw for a 63-54 edge with 1:36 remaining.

Washington never got closer than nine the rest of the way.
