Basement bearing wall

absolutely you can, just hope you don't get a Tropical Storm Debbie type rain, may be you're in a dry area of the country and rain is not a concern. In my area rain is usually a concern.

every area of the country have their own little nuances, one of the reasons I enjoy this forum.

Good luck!
