The Bernie Fine scandal just got a little more interesting, with new, salacious allegations concerning his wife. An affidavit filed by former ball boy Robert Davis, claims he heard Laurie Fine and another coach’s wife discuss performing oral sex on Syracuse players and their “specific size and physical attributes.” The affidavit suggests she had multiple sexual relationships with players.
Davis mentions a specific encounter in 1993 where he allegedly went with Laurie Fine to an off-campus home in 1993, where she had sex with one of the players.
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.
Davis claims knowledge of her activity was widespread throughout the Syracuse program. He alleges players considered it “a known fact” and Fine showed “no reaction” when Davis revealed her actions. He believes it is “impossible that James Boeheim did not know.”
“I believe Boeheim deliberately chose to ignore what he knew was improper behavior, or actually knew precisely what was happening and did nothing to intervene,” Davis said in the affidavit.
“It is not only Fine’s relationship with me and other boys that would have tipped Boeheim off. For years, Bernie Fine’s wife Laurie Fine had sexual relationships with basketball team players. Players used to talk openly about it as a known fact.”
Davis previously released an audiotape, purporting that Laurie Fine acknowledged her husband’s alleged molestation. He also claims the two had a sexual encounter when he was a high-school senior.
Syracuse was not ready to comment.
