I'm starting to talk to the ex-boyfriend of this girl on my volleyball team. Me and her aren't close, actually we aren't even friends. He asked me out and we are starting to really like each other. Once the girl on my volleyball team heard about me talking to her ex she got really hurt and now she won't talk to me. What should I do? Her ex-boyfriend asked me if it's a good idea for me and him to stop talking to each other until everything cools down. But I don't know if that will help. What should we do? And he talked to her about everything and she said that she doesn't care, but I think she is lying.

I don't think it's wrong to like him. They broke up, he's a free agent.
I also think she wasn't entirely telling the truth when she said she didn't care, but it HURTS to see your ex with someone else.
I think it's fine to date him, and don't try and hide it from her like it's a secret but neither should you flaunt it (i.e.: "[Dave] was so sweet last night!"). It might be a good idea to tone it down for a while when you're around her or in a public place, but you shouldn't knock the relationship entirely because of someone else's emotions. Be kind to her, because she's probably hurtin' bad right now, but that's her stuff, and you have yours.1
