Her mother Kim Conway-Greene — one of the best shooters in the history of Arizona’s women’s basketball — is with her every step of the way figuratively on the golf course and the basketball court.
But accomplished Rincon/University student-athlete Madeline Greene is blazing her own trail when it comes to athletic prominence. A Class of 2021 standout, she said she will continue her golf career in college as she plans to take recruiting visits to California during spring break next month.
Conway, the No. 3 shooter in Arizona history with a percentage of 56.2 from the field, was in the stands Thursday night at Flowing Wells watching her daughter contribute eight points in the Rangers’ 45-42 win.
I mentioned to Kim, whom I covered at Arizona while working with The Arizona Daily Star, that when I saw her daughter on the court I had flashbacks of watching her play for June Olkowski and Joan Bonvicini. Her daughter wears the No. 32 she wore with the Wildcats.
“I wasn’t quite the athlete she is,” Conway said with a laugh.
I am old. It was confirmed tonight when I interviewed Rincon/University point forward Madeline Greene, daughter of former @ArizonaWBB standout Kim Conway, who I covered at the Star when she played with the Wildcats. pic.twitter.com/GxpPDsaeKM

Both are fierce competitors. Conway-Greene was all business on the court, and her daughter is the same way. You can’t tell if Rincon is up by 20 or down by 10 by the look on her face on the court.
Conway-Greene remains close to the Arizona basketball program because of how Adia Barnes has opened the door for her and other alumni to help support the Wildcats.
“Adia has been so welcoming to us. I am very impressed with what she is doing,” said Conway-Greene, who is a teacher and athletic director at St. Michael’s School in Tucson.
