In November, Bobby Davis accused long-time Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine of sexually assualting him for many years.
After more accusers came forward, and an audio tape of a phone conversation between Davis and Fine’s wife, Laurie, surfaced, Fine was fired.
Previously, there were rumours Laurie Fine had sex with several basketball players as well.
Now, in the affidavit, Davis says Laurie Fine did have sexual relationships with many of the basketball players, according to the New York Daily News.
Davis says in 1993 he went with Laurie Fine to a player’s apartment, and Fine went with the player into his bedroom and shut the door. The two then came out of the room and the player “pumped his fists,” saying he had sex with the coach’s wife.
In another instance, Davis says he was driving Laurie Fine and another coach’s wife around as they discussed having oral sex with players, and describing the players’ “specific size and physical attributes.”
Davis told Bernie Fine about his wife’s relationship with players and Fine “gave no reaction to my statement at all, indicating it was not a surprise, not a big deal. It was impossible that James Boeheim did not know,” according to the affidavit.
Davis also stated in the court papers, (referring to him and his brother being sexually abused by Bernie Fine):
“I believe Boeheim deliberately chose to ignore what he knew was improper behaviour, or actually knew precisely what was happening and did nothing to intervene.”
Davis, with lawyer Gloria Allred, is suing Jim Boeheim for defamation for statements he made after Davis’ accusations.
