IN BRIEF : Measles Outbreak Cancels Game

From Times staff and wire service reports

The basketball game between the University of New Hampshire and University of Hartford in Durham tonight has been postponed because the Hartford team has been exposed to measles, a University of New Hampshire spokesman said today. State health officials barred the Hartford team from entering the state, spokesman Eric McDowell said. Initially, state health officials had agreed to allow the game to be played if no fans were present, thereby limiting the number of people who could be exposed to measles. North Atlantic Conference and school officials meet Friday to discuss the measles outbreak that is wrecking basketball schedules two weeks before the league tournament. The Siena College team also has been exposed to measles but, as of this morning, it still was scheduled to play in Durham on Monday with no fans present.
