Ball is passed in with no call made team A proceeds down court for possible game winning shot.

Should the ball have been turned over to team B to inbound from that spot or was it correctly called?
No violation.

The spot for a throw in is actually 3 feet wide and is unlimited in depth.(unless constricted by a wall, bleachers...etc)

A player can move by any means as long as he/she keeps one foot in that designated area. There are no restrictions with regards to pivot foot, the player can dribble the ball, and he/she can jump up and down.

All without penalty
