well that would depend on what R value your area calls for in basement walls. Most areas of Canada now require R20 So if you use R14 Roxul and the 1-1/2" (R5.63) does not really make it but may be allowed.
Now if you used 1-1/2" XPS rigid foam (R8) and even regular 3-1/2" batt insulation(R12) you would be right on the mark.
