Report: Filing Says Fine's Wife Slept with Players
NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Daily News is reporting that former Syracuse ball boy Bobby Davis says in an affidavit that the wife of former Orange assistant coach Bernie Fine had sex with the players.

The affidavit was filed Monday in New York State Supreme Court by attorney Gloria Allred.

Davis and stepbrother Michael Lang are suing Syracuse and basketball coach Jim Boeheim, saying they were defamed when Boeheim called them liars out to make money by accusing Fine, Boeheim's longtime assistant, of molesting them.

Davis and Lang claim they were repeatedly forcibly touched by Fine in the 1980s.

The 66-year-old Fine was fired Nov. 27. He has not been charged and has denied any wrongdoing.

Syracuse said it would comment at an appropriate time.
