Fu, when you do the rest of the basement, if you research EPS vs XPS foam and make a decision I'd be interested in hearing which you pick and why. That's on my "figure out" list before we start our job.

From what i've read briefly, either work pretty well in a basement. XPS has a bit better R value. And if moisture is a concern at all, go with XPS. But XPS is a bit more $.

I've settled on Roxul for my basement in between the walls.
