Sure, that's fairly straightforward by using the newsgroup restrictions in
either nnrp.access or readers.conf, depending on the version of INN that
you're running (readers.conf in the current development code, nnrp.access
in everything else).  See the man pages for more details and let us know
if the man pages aren't clear.
