They started as a group of mates playing basketball for "a bit of fun" but now they want to take on the world's best and shoot their way to a $26,000 pay day.

Canberra's three-on-three men's team have advanced to the Pro Hustle quarter finals and will face some of the world's top-ranked teams in Sydney on Friday.

Lachlan Ross, Tim Hewitt, Dylan Simpson and Reece Kaye will be playing for a $US20,0000 prize and a ticket to the FIBA World Master's Tour.

Ross admits they only entered the competition for fun, but now believes they can knock off international heavyweights Serbia and France en route to the title.

"We are just a couple of lads from Canberra but to think we could take on some of the world's best is really exciting" Ross said.
