Barry Brown admits Kansas State players were at fault for lack of handshakes
There was a bit of a flap over the Kentucky Wildcats’ failure to shake hands with Kansas State players after the latter’s upset win, but K State’s Barry Brown Jr. is clearing things up.
Brown admitted that his team was at fault for the lack of handshakes because they were too busy celebrating their surprising late win.
“I think we were just cheering too much and didn’t really get kind of organized to be able to get in that line and shake their hands,” Brown said, via Chip Patterson of CBS Sports. “Maybe they just walked off just because they didn’t think that we were going to get organized and be able to shake their hands.
“It’s not that big of a deal. We were celebrating and they maybe thought we weren’t going to shake their hands. It’s not anything that we should be worried about. That was yesterday, and we’re just focused on Loyola and what we can do to beat them today.”
Basically, everyone’s routine was a little bit thrown by Brown’s late layup. It certainly doesn’t sound like either side meant any disrespect.
