While Jag fans probably expected the tide to turn in the final 20 minutes, it didn't happen as BPCC scored the first six points of the final half.
The Cavs' biggest lead of the night, 54-32, came with 15:25 left in the game, as the Cavs opened the last segment by going 6-6 from the field.
JC had a strong spurt midway of the closing period that enabled the Jags to pull to within nine points, 65-56, with 6:03 left to play, but that was as close as it would get.
The Jag scoring spree was highlighted by a 10-2 JC mini run.
BPCC's Gustavs Puhovs totaled a game-high 18 points. Puhov went 4-6 from three point range.
Will Thomas and Lyndale James added 15 apiece for the winners.
Chris Campbell wound up with a team-best 17 for JC, with Anthony Sharp firing in 10.
JC committed 19 miscues to BPCC's 18, but 13 of the Jag gaffes came in the first half and contributed to the Cavs' early success.
The win was, no doubt, an important one for BPCC.
“As long as we have been coming over here (to Jacksonville), I don't think we (Bossier) have ever beaten Jacksonville over here,” French said.
