Defensive Positioning during dribble drive penetration

I apologize if this has already been covered but I've seen a number cases recently where an offensive player will initiate a one-on-one move towards the basket and the defensive player does a nice job by moving his feet and staying in front, all the way defending with his chest out and arms back, and then when the offensive player reaches the basket, his last move initiates contact with the defender and a foul is called on the defensive player.

My question is, if that is a foul, what should the defender do differently to avoid it?
