CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) -- A former University of Cincinnati volleyball player is suing the school, saying she was kicked off the team for posting photos on Instagram that were "too sexy."

Nineteen-year-old Shalom Ifeanyi filed the lawsuit in federal court last week, alleging racial and sex discrimination by U-C and volleyball coach Molly Alvey.

Ifeanyi says she was removed from the team because she did not fit the description of a U-C volleyball player.

She alleges Alvey harassed her about the pictures posted to her social media accounts.

The teenager is seeking compensatory damages, punitive damages and attorney fees.

A spokesman for U-C says the university has no comment on pending legal matters.
