I found this in our basement and have no idea what kind of insect it is. It's body was about 2 inches long. Anyone have any idea what it is? It looks like a cross between a cockroach and a cricket to me.

Legs are too long. Body isn't wide enough. I think it might be a Zebra (Scaly) Cricket, but I can't find any pictures of one to verify that.
