The rules state, 'Though the Basilisk is restricted to the bottom board, it has the power to freeze any opposing piece on the cell directly above it on the middle board. Freezing is automatic whether an opposing piece moves over the Basilisk or the Basilisk moves under the opposing piece.' The key term here is 'opposing piece.' This means one of the opponent's pieces.
