Fine's wife accused of sex with players
By QMI Agency
The wife of disgraced Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine had sex with numerous players over many years, according to an explosive affidavit by one of the ball boys Fine is accused of molesting.
In the court papers, Robert Davis, one of the former ball boys, says he heard several players speak of having sex with Laurie Fine. He said players made jokes about what appeared to be a well-known fact. He said he overheard Laurie Fine and the wife of another coach talk about sex with players, the New York Daily News reports.
The university fired Fine in November after ESPN reported it had an audiotape in which Laurie Fine acknowledged she feared her husband had molested Davis but felt powerless to stop it.
In December, Davis and his stepbrother, Mike Lang, filed a slander suit, charging that basketball coach Jim Boeheim defamed them when he said they lied about being sexually abused by Fine, Boeheim”s long-time assistant.
