UConn player sues over punishment for middle-finger incident

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) A former UConn soccer player who lost her scholarship after giving the middle finger to a television camera plans to sue the school, alleging her punishment was excessive.

Noriana Radwan, who now plays for Hofstra, has scheduled a news conference for Monday in New York.

She made the obscene gesture to an ESPNU camera while celebrating with teammates after the Huskies beat the University of South Florida 3-2 on penalty kicks in the 2014 American Athletic Conference championship game.

Coach Len Tsantiris initially suspended Radwan from the 2014 NCAA Tournament and issued a statement apologizing to the conference, USF and those who watched the game on television.

1. Excessive punishment

But what in the world would possess her to give a middle finger to a camera while "celebrating?"

Doesn't she realize that universities need the money they get from televising rights to keep these sports programs running? Dumb, dumb move.
