Court Papers Say Bernie Fine's Wife Slept With Syracuse Players

The wife of former Syracuse basketball coach Bernie Fine had sex with a number of SU players over many years, according to an affidavit by one of the ball boys Fine is accused of molesting.

In the affidavit, former ball boy Bobby Davis talks about hearing Laurie Fine and the wife of another Syracuse coach talk about performing oral sex on players, and the "specific size and physical attributes" of their private parts.

Davis, the first of multiple men to accuse Bernie Fine of molestation, had previously told ESPN that Laurie Fine had initiated sex with him when he was a high school senior. In a recorded phone conversation between Davis and Laurie Fine, she seems to imply that some improper behavior between the two took place.

According to the affidavit, when Davis told Bernie Fine about his wife’s sexual contact with players, Fine "gave no reaction to my statement at all, indicating it was not a surprise, not a big deal.

Davis went into more detail about Laurie Fine's involvement with one particular player.

"The affidavit says Davis accompanied Laurie Fine in 1993 to an off-campus house where a player lived. Laurie Fine and the player went into the player's bedroom; when the player came out a short time later, he pumped his fist in the air and bragged that he just had sex with the assistant coach's wife.

A few years later, Laurie Fine and the wife of another coach talked about having sex with players while Davis drove them around Syracuse, the court papers say. The women talked about performing oral sex on the players, and discussed their "physical attributes."

Attorney Gloria Allred filed a lawsuit last month on behalf of Davis and his stepbrother Michael Lang which charges that that Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim defamed them when he said they lied about being sexually abused by Fine.

Fine has not been charged with any crime because it was determined the statute of limitations had run out.
