The news conference will begin at 2 p.m. EST at the Marriott Renaissance Hotel and will detail why the two men have decided to file a lawsuit against Syracuse.

As previously reported, federal and state statutes of limitations have expired over the allegations that Davis and Lang have made. However, a third alleged victim, Zach Tomaselli, 23, has come forward to say that Fine molested him in 2002 when he was 13, at a Pittsburgh hotel where the team was staying on a road trip. Tomaselli was also a ball boy for the revered basketball team.  It's virtually unheard of in college basketball for a ball boy to travel on the road with the team.
