George Hicker, former Syracuse University men’s basketball player and a member of the SU Board of Trustees, rejected the idea that Thursday’s allegations against Bernie Fine are in any way accurate. Fine, an associate head coach for the men’s basketball team, is accused of molesting two former ball boys, Bobby Davis and Mike Lang, according to an article published by ESPN on Thursday. The Syracuse Police Department is investigating the allegations against Fine. Fine is now on administrative leave. ‘I’ve been around him in every imaginable circumstance in life,’ Hicker said of Fine. ‘And there is no chance, no chance these allegations are right.’ Hicker played for the men’s basketball team from 1964-68. As a sophomore, Hicker played alongside then-senior SU head coach Jim Boeheim. Hicker said he has known both Boeheim and Fine, who was a student manager of the team at the time, for at least 45 years. ‘I know them. There’s no way this kind of stuff is going on,’ Hicker said. ‘Boeheim never saw anything, this guy is lying, and Bernie never did it.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Hicker criticized ESPN for reporting on the investigation without having full knowledge of the facts, calling it ‘irresponsible journalism.’ What happened at the Pennsylvania State University is not similar to the events at SU, Hicker said. ‘It’s an entirely different situation at Penn Sate, where there was a grand jury investigation,’ Hicker said. ‘They only just initiated a police investigation here so it’s not even a comparable thing. They’re going to investigate it and then they’re going to drop it.’ When asked whether Hicker had spoken with Boeheim or Fine, Hicker didn’t provide comment. However, Hicker said he had spoken to a ‘tremendous amount of people’ after the news broke, many of whom played for both Fine and Boeheim. He described those he spoke with as ‘flabbergasted by the allegations’ and said no one believes the accusations to be true. Hicker said he doesn’t know how long it will take for the allegations to die down, but hopes the situation will settle as soon as possible so that each party involved can move on. Said Hicker: ‘Hopefully they can get to it quickly so that he can go back to his job and when he walks into the Carrier Dome he gets an ovation for what he’s meant to the school.’ [email protected] Comments Published on November 17, 2011 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+
The other Second B still in liza said goodbye to a Granada accustomed to take out trap games in the Cup, thanks to Carlos Fernández 2-3 in 109 ‘. Badajoz pulled an epic to tie (2-2) on the last play through Caballero. Soldier, newly entered, had done 1-2 in the 86th minute confirming the Andalusian dominance in the Nuevo Vivero Stadium despite moments of lack of control.This was the beginning, with the goal in the first minute of Álex Martínez and the local tie of Pablo Vázquez in a noise in the area. Granada finished the first half better and, despite a Gorka option for Badajoz, those of Diego Martínez drove the second half until Soldier gave what seemed more than half a ticket. As before Hospitalet and Badalona, it was up to Granada to win it in extra time.Comfortable ticket from Villarreal and Real SociedadThe afternoon shift left the Villarreal pass in two blows in the last minutes of Fernando Niño and Cazorla (0-2) against Rayo Vallecano. The Madrid team wanted to knock another First but fell short and saw his two-month streak cut without losing. The newcomer Isi gave the locals a lot, as they expect in Vallecas after Embarba’s departure, and Andrés Martín, Mario Suárez and Joni Montiel had good chances.The ‘submarine’ lived further from the rival goal and approached in some local loss, with the advanced lines as usual Jémez team, with Bacca and Ontiveros. The second part was gradually yellow, with many people above and better mobility with the entrance of Cazorla. A goal by Quintillá was annulled by the VAR but Niño, who debuted in the league scoring both the victory against Alavés on Saturday, and Cazorla knocked down the Vallecano dream.In addition, Real Sociedad made it easy against Osasuna, despite a first exchange of blows, with goals from Isak and Cardona for the immediate 1-1. After the break, Oedegaard, assistant in the first, scored a direct foul 2-1 and shortly after Isak continued to gain his great moment in the face of the goal with the sentence. Osasuna was far from turning to another intense date with a Real who returned to be an executioner ‘reddish’ as a month ago in the league. Photo: EFE Valencia and Granada suffer before Cultural Leonesa and BadajozVillarreal and Real Sociedad make it easy against Rayo and Osasuna Valencia suffered in a bad game but took the penalty to the pass to the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey in the Kingdom of León, while Granada was credited again to the victory in extra time (2-3) in Badajoz, in a quieter day for Villarreal and Real Sociedad.After giving the bell against Atlético de Madrid, Cultural Leonesa once again faced one of the greats of Primera, a Valencia who went to rest without knocking on goal. The locals jumped very motivated and with arrivals, a ball to the crossbar of Augusto Galván included. Those of Celades went from less to more and, although they generated danger, they failed to reduce local euphoria.In the mouth of goal did not finish Soler and Gameiro missed two auction options. After the break Valencia worsened its performance. Kondogbia had a good chance ‘che’ but the ‘Cultu’ continued to gain in effort and pressure. The wear of Sergio Benito had no prize in the final stretch, for a shot that could only connect with the thigh. Already in extra time Luque forced Jaume and the goal ‘che’ began to warm up for penalties.Ferran had a couple of occasions, another Nephew, the best in Valencia to see in action for the first time a Giffard that made Atleti bitter in the previous round. The French goal however could not be a hero on penalties as the rival goal. Menudo and Benito met Jaume, an income that the current champion did not miss to avoid the scare in Leon.
