Kind of. The try ends once the ball hits the floor. At that point, it just becomes a stray, bouncing ball, which, if it happens to go through the hoop off of a bounce, is only worth 2 points, even if the last place it touched the floor was outside the 3 point line.
If you ain't first, you're LAST!!!
