I don't understand the difference between a basal body, a centriole, and an axenome. They all look the same and I'm partly familiar with the function of each.

If you think a basal body looks like an axoneme, you're not as familiar with them as you need to be. :)

Basal bodies and centrioles do look the same, but they are found in different locations. Basal bodies anchor axonemes, and centrioles are part of a centrosome.
