If you include the borders, you have Maryland and West Virgnia, both good basketball schools, who could get the pick of the litter in Virginia/DC area if they want.

To Providence, blame the Big East. They play dominant competition in and out and they never will get better, especially since those schools can get national talent, not just kids from their states.
Good point on Virginia...but they still cant convince guys to play at Virginia? All of those schools you mention are better than Virgina--and they cant assemble some of that talent? There is still something wrong there.

As a native Virginian, I would say that a lot of the talent in parts of Virginia that arent in Charlottesville or some of Northern VA have a stigma about UVA. I can vouch that most Southern VA, SW Virginia, and Hampton Roads are purely Virginia Tech country. UVA comes off as kind of a Richie Rich school which some can be turned off of.

Native Virginian here as well...and I have to agree...especially Hampton Roads being VT territory. Hampton Roads has loads of talent, and Im not sure how much of it ends up playing for the Cavs...
