Verticality applies to a legal position. The basic components of the principle of basketball  (external link) verticality are:

• Legal guarding position must be established and attained initially, and movement thereafter must be legal;
From this position, the defender may rise or jump vertically and occupy the space within his or her vertical plane;

• The hands and arms of the defender may be raised within his or her vertical plane while the defender is on the floor or in the air;

• The defender should not be penalized for leaving the floor vertically or having his or her hands and arms extended within the vertical plane;

• The offensive player whether on the floor or airborne may not clear out or cause contact that is a foul ;

• The defender may not "belly up" or use the lower part of the body or arms to cause contact that is a foul outside his or her vertical plane;

• The player with the ball is to be given no more protection or consideration than the defender in the judging of which player has violated the rules.
