Offensive rebounds doom the Beavs
But offensive rebounds and poor free throw shooting killed the Beavs.
Washington, the conference leader in offensive rebounds at more than 14 per game, had nine at halftime and 16 for the game.
Washington took the lead for good at 61-58 on Abdul Gaddy's 3-pointer with 4:58 left. Tony Wroten grabbed an offensive rebound and scored with 4:02 remaining to put the Huskies up five.
Both teams struggled especially in the first half, when the game was tied at 31.
A 3-pointer by Oregon State's Ahmad Starks with 2:10 left made it 65-63 and another with 22 seconds to go to get the Beavers within 70-68. But OSU could get no closer.
Washington's Desmond Simmons made two free three throws, and teammate Terrence Ross added two more with 10 seconds left after Cunningham missed a 3-point try.
C.J. Wilcox added 17 points for the Huskies (17-8, 10-3), who went back into a tie for first place in the Pac-12 with California, which won at UCLA on Saturday.
Wilcox's 3-pointer capped a 6-0 Washington run that put the Huskies ahead 13-10. Oregon State answered with six in a row, with Starks scoring twice then passing to Cunningham for a transition basket.
Oregon State's Devon Collier later scored four in a row in another 6-0 run that gave the Beavers a 24-19 lead. Washington finished the half on a 6-1 run to get to 31-all at the break.
