However, was it a try for goal? Obviously, it was a pass. Wouldn't only two points be awarded if it's not a try? And, in this specific case, if not a try, wouldn't the ball become dead when the foul occurs, which was before the ball passed through the basket, resulting in no points and Duke's throw-in?

I feel there has been a thread on a hypothetical situation just like this in the past.
The rule is that a ball thrown from behind the arc that goes in is to be counted as 3 points. The rule does not say that it is automatically a try if it goes in, just that it will get 3 points.

If there is a defensive foul, the ball is dead immediately unless a try is in progress.

Several have debated this in the past and there isn't a consensus.
