ST. THOMAS — University of the Virgin Islands’ men’s basketball coach Jeff Jones counted on College of the Ozarks coach Steve Shepherd to make a few adjustments after losing Tuesday’s game.

Jones just didn’t count on his Buccaneers not making their own adjustments, falling to the Bobcats 73-62 on Wednesday night to split their two-game series at the UVI Sports and Fitness Center.
