I think you can, but someone else on this forum tried that and I think it created a good bit of moisture in his home. There is a thread about it somewhere.
Here it is:
That sounds scary but his situation sounds like there is something else goin on there.I will not be putting all this wood in the basement all at once,maybe over a 3 month period.I am going to stack it on pallets for circulation which should dry it out pretty fast.In the spring when I cut this wood I will probably have my windows open for a couple of weeks anyway,so I dont think there will be a problem.
Kind of depends on the humidity of your basement. Not knowing that I would think you'd be far better off stacking it outside where sun and wind can get at it.
I used to stack dry wood only in the fall in my basement and would run a dehumidifier for a week or two,
Agree with the above post. If your basement gets any kind of water or moisture, it will find its way to the wood.
DeHumidifier couple times a week is the way to go.
