Troy's secret weapon is the world's most unhealthy (but delicious!) burger
Good morning, and thanks for your continued support of Extra Points.
It's been a good few days for Troy basketball.
On the 5th, Troy women clobbered South Alabama, 84-52, as they kept pace with UT-Arlington to remain in first place in the Sun Belt. Not only did they grab an important win, but they broke a record for attendance:
Oh you know, new game, new Troy Basketball attendance record:

The week before, Troy's men's program also beat South Alabama. That game was also one of the best attended in Troy history, drawing over 4,000 fans.
What a GREAT ⚔️ weekend!
From hosting our inaugural 1st pitch banquet celebrating @TroyTrojansSB & @TroyTrojansBSB Friday night to @TroyTrojansWBB road victory to @TroyTrojansMBB home victory in front our 3rd largest crowd!
Blessed & humbled by the support! THANK YOU #OneTROY

4,500 fans is nothing to sneeze at for a Sun Belt program. Sure, Troy's men and women's basketball programs are near the top of the conference. Both games were on a Saturday, making it easier for families to attend. Troy is a pretty little town, and enjoys a lot of community support, so the success of their programs won't get drowned out like it could in other markets. Unquestionably, all of that played a role in Troy's ability to get bodies in the building.
But the school also had a secret weapon. An effective weapon. A delicious weapon.
