The French champions have endured a roller-coaster campaign, having had to recover from losing their first three games and indeed it was their win at the Steel Arena against Kosice back in December, which truly sparked them into life.
With the visitors also suffering from an inconsistent few months, both teams headed into this fixture with a 5-4 record, but it was Bourges who came out on top after a power-packed display.
They soared into an 18-8 lead off the back of successive triples from Diandra Tchatchouang and the inside presence of Marianna Tolo and Endene Miyem.
And, the early ascendency they established was barely relinquished throughout the remainder of the contest.
In fact, their superiority was only solidified and strengthened via a commanding passage of play either side of the break when they established a 13-4 run to move 17 points clear.
It gave them a handy cushion to stave off a potential revival and comeback from Kosice, but it never arrived with the Slovak team hampered by Lynetta Kizer fouling out early.
Tolo stood out with a near-perfect shooting performance which harvested 17 points, whilst Celine Dumerc dished up eight assists.
Tijana Krivacevic impressed for Good Angels by also scoring 17 points.
