    Jose Rebimbas will return to Seton Hall Friday night with a heavy heart.

    Mariana Goncalves, the aunt of the William Paterson men’s basketball coach, passed away at 11:58 p.m. Wednesday night after a battle with ovarian cancer.

    Rebimbas, a member of the 1989 Seton Hall NCAA runner-up team, plans to attend his aunt’s wake in Kearny, N.J. until about 6:45 Friday night before coaching his Division 3 outfit in an exhibition against the Pirates at Walsh Gym. Gametime is 7 o’clock.
