NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Daily News reports that former Syracuse ball boy Bobby Davis says in an affidavit 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.

A lawyer for Fine's wife, Laurie, calls that accusation a "desperate" attempt to keep the suit alive.

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 of molesting them.

Davis and Lang claim they were repeatedly forcibly touched by Fine in the 1980s. Fine has not been charged and has denied any wrongdoing.

Syracuse University has said it will comment at an appropriate time.
