There was some false news flying around after last nights game and early this morning that the Kentucky players failed to shake hands with the Kansas State team. While K-State players say Kentucky players walked away from them, the following image and tweet shows the truth.
DeWayne Peevy, the UK Director of Athletics, tweeted the following, which shows Kentucky in line to shake the K-State coaching staffs hands while the players were off celebrating.
There were several false reports last night that our players didn’t shake hands after the game. Our student-athletes did shake hands with the K-State staff while the team was celebrating. Good luck to @KStateMBB and @RamblersMBB in the Elite Eight. pic.twitter.com/lvo8tQjcME

I was sitting on the end of the K-State bench and immediately following the final horn, players began to move towards the K-State fans to celebrate.
Kansas State junior guard Amaad Wainright and Levi Stockard had plenty to say about not shaking hands.
