If the studs are sitting on a sill plate,you should be able to support the wall with a beam and jackposts from the basement. When all else fails you can take off some of the sideing and see just how the studs are attached. Nail a 2x10 on the to the studs and then support the wall with a beam and jackposts. The wall should be quite rigid with the sheathing and sheetrock.
